Pull up the gangway, Jack . . .

I understand that New Labour is planning to charge tuition fees to students and abolish the grant altogether.

This is demotivating for sixth-form students who will not have the opportunity to go to university because they feel their families cannot afford it.

Many of the new Labour MPs benefited from the system which allowed them to climb the ladder, now they aim to kick it away for everyone else.

I assume these honourable ladies and gentlemen will be paying back their student grants with interest now.
