    Politicians should stop using a "carrot of higher graduate earnings" to justify raising student fees or freezing repayment thresholds, say campaigners.

    Those who do "should be charged with gross mis-selling", says Angus Hanton, co-founder of the Intergenerational Foundation (IF) lobby group.

    Paying off student debts will wipe out any graduate premium for most professions, claims the IF in a report.


    Graduate premium really just a 100k. Debts could be up to 50k + interest (for now).
