Tories promised to abolish #tuitionfees. Where’s THAT in media now?
The Tories’ unseemly attempts to ignore conclusive evidence this week in order to try to start a ‘scandal’ over a supposed Labour u-turn on student debt has been embarrassing for them and speaks volumes about their dishonesty, lack of integrity – and desperation.
It’s also grossly hypocritical and not just because the Tories were u-turning on their u-turns and – for the first time in history – scrapping their manifesto even before the election and dropped most of what little was left in it after the vote.
It’s doubly hypocritical because the Tories chose student finance as the topic of their u-turn smear – when they previously promised to abolish tuition fees when they were in opposition.
As everyone knows, that hasn’t happened. Instead the Tories have massively increased tuition fees – and are planning to increase them further, unless they are forced to drop that plan, too.
