Hurrah at Scotland leading the way! I'm increasingly impressed by Alex Salmond's Scottish National Party and their egalitarian social policies. Can't understand why this isn't enshrined in English law already.

Exactly. England should be leading the way!

As you know, Scottish students still get free university education. That is what we should be providing in England too.

New Labour, when they introduced university fees, basically priced the working class out of higher education. The Tories, when they raise fees starting next year, will make sure that any social mobility we ever had in this country is more or less wiped out!
