    Mr. Willetts,

    Instead of painting this as a tough choice necessary to reduce the deficit, it should be promoted as a desirable option - which is what it is. Do you not agree that the government could have marketed this much better?

    Let me expound, it should be far more publicised that the repayments do not act like a debt, that the threshold going up means every single graduate will pay less per month than they otherwise would have, that the continuation of no upfront fees and a more generous maintenance loans system means access is improved, not restricted.

    That the government has allowed some of the myths to perpetrate is to blame for the anger and protests around the proposals, not the proposals themselves, do you agree?
