It’s not affordable!’ Corbyn plan to scrap tuition fees slammed by ex-education secretary

7 Jun

Alan Johnson, a highly respected moderate who has just retired from Parliament, damned the policy as “unaffordable” and suggested it would penalise working class families to subsidise wealthy middle class students.

Mr Johnson, who was also Home Secretary, introduced higher tuition fees when he ran the Department for Education.

He said that his party should remember the fate of the Lib Dems and their former leader Nick Clegg who went into coalition with the Tories having being elected on a pledge to scrap tuition fees.
