It's been announced that Simon Hughes, the Lib Dem deputy leader who abstained on the vote to rise tuition fees, has been appointed to a new role of advocate for access to higher education by the Government.

What do you make of this?

Is it a good move where he can ensure people are not scared off from entering higher education?

Is it a sign of the Liberal Democrats working together with Government to repair the problems threatening to rip the party apart?

Or has the Government bought his support and silence by offering him what will be a high profile position?

Is it a sell out and a rejection of his supporters as he now has to promote a policy that he could not even bring himself to vote for?

Is the Government accepting their plans will dissuade people from poorer background from entering university by admitting their is even a need for such a role?

Possibly a way to shut him up.
He won't shut up, give him a job.
