“This is only going to end one way” writes Lord Adonis, Labour peer and one of the architects of an earlier version of tuition fees as Tony Blair’s former heads of policy.
“Almost no-one inside or outside government thinks that tuition fees will survive. In my view, fees have now become so politically diseased that they should be abolished entirely.”
The debate surrounding tuition fees has re-entered the headlines and there seems to have been a huge sea-change in attitudes surrounding the topic, particularly after the new “indefensible” interest rates of 6.1% on loans. Indeed, Jeremy Corbyn fought much of his election campaign on the promise to scrap fees entirely and write-off all student debt to the tune of a staggering £76bn.
The system is broken. Students can hardly afford to pay of the fees as they rise with inflation.
Listener Harry messaged in to say that the current model is still fair, but Benji Hyer failed to agree.
