    Labour will probably reduce, or remove, the fees if they get into power after the deficit has been reduced.
    Where do you get that idea from?

    They introduced them when there was a public sector surplus...

    No they won't because like the Lib Dems they're pro career politicians who would sell out their own mother to get in power, same as the Tories.

    Even worse, ol' Eddy boy wants an eternal tax placed on you if you went Uni. What a complete and utter ****.

    No, why would they? By the time they may have a chance to, we will probably all be used to 9k p/a anyway, so there's no need to spend government money fixing a problem that people have become used to.

    Speculation? I was under the impression tuition fees were raised to help raise money to go towards the deficit. I assume they're not in place just to piss liberals and poor people off

    All parties will talk tough on tuition fees, but if they gained power they'd probably realise its best to keep them high.

    Of course they wouldn't. If hypothetically labour had won the last election I can almost guarantee that they'd have done the exact same thing with fees.

    How does raising fees reduce the deficit?

    How are people going to be paying the fees?
