How Nick Clegg betrayed England's students


Not only did Clegg and co sign written pledges that the party would "vote against any increase in fees in the next Parliament", they were also considerate enough to warn students that tuition fees could rise to as much as £7,000 under Labour or the Conservatives.
"Labour and the Conservatives have been trying to keep tuition fees out of this election campaign. It's because they don't want to come clean with you about what they're planning," Clegg claimed in late April.



On 9th December 2010, that very same Nick Clegg voted for a near-trebling of tuition fees.


Nick Clegg is not only the Ramsay McDonald of modern British politics- he’s taken over from Tony Blair as the Pinocchio of British politics too.

I also expect him to recreate the role of the invisible man once the electorate have had a chance to tell him what they think.

Huhne seems to be popping up conspicuously: they should have voted for him in the first place.
