    Fellow students,

    Today, there has been talk in the news of Vince Cable and other Liberal Democrat MP's abstaining from the vote to increase tuition fees.

    Please understand that this does NOT mean that they are voting NO. Liberal democrat MPs must specifically vote against these proposals, if they all abstain, the motion WILL be passed. They are trying to fool the public and trying to be seen to take the moral high-ground. dont let them.

    I'd prefer Cable to vote yes than abstain, at least then it'd show he's got balls, and I like balls.

    You don't know that but in the balance of probabilities you're right.
