I must confess to being an extreme cynic: and that I have little doubt that the system of fees was introduced simply to raise more money for the chancellor. An horrendous amount of tax payers money has been wasted over the last 20 years, and this waste has to be paid for.(Original post by Quady)
Well fees must have come in for a reason... unlike the NHS at that time I know little about it. I agree with your other reply, I'm surprised things were more lackluster back then.
It never ceases to amaze me how increase in tobacco duty is always for the smokers benefit, and a few pence on alcohol is to help people to cut down, a little more on fuel so people can think about green issues.... the lies go on and on.... it is all about money and buying the vote. I am no fan of any of the main parties, but I even surprise myself in that as someone who was once staunch left could be in a position that I despise the Labour party to an even greater degree than I do the tories.
Students must fight the marketisation of education! Watch

Don't you think protests were made before the introductions? Why do you think they failed?
