[100 word news] – Scrapping tuition fees ‘a cheap, populist gesture’, says Vince Cable

Sir Vince Cable has called Labour’s promise to scrap tuition fees a ‘cheap, populist gesture’.

‘If you don’t have any form of fees, who pays for universities?’

‘How do you end this discrimination between the 40% of students who go to university and would be subsided, as opposed to the 60% who don’t? That would be highly inequitable’.

‘Yes, by all means let’s look at universities, but universities are about the only bit of the publicly financed sector which are flourishing’.

‘For goodness sake with some cheap populist gesture, killing that off would be a very dangerous and stupid thing to do’.
