David Willets, universities minister, has said:
that the cost of hundreds of thousands of students' degree courses was a "burden on the taxpayer that had to be tackled".
And this from a man who in opposition argued that the bay boomer generation (of which he and I are a part) had alreadystolen younger people's future prosperity.
Now he's in office it looks like he's determined to kick the young whilst they're down.
And at the same time end investment in the knowledge economy.
And consign our young people to a lifetime of debt slavery.
Was there ever a government more intent on using government to service the needs of the financial services sector for ever expanding debt than the current bunch of ConDem cronies?
