Tuition Fees: Just A Question Of Language Apparently

Last autumn I linked to a local LibDem activist who had complained to his national party leader about being put in the position of "Knocking on doors and being called liars".

Sadly, Chris Mills later removed his response to Nick Clegg's letter to members on the tuition fees debacle.

However it now appears that Chris thinks it is just a problem of language. Apparently if the tuition fees, loans and debts were renamed a graduate tax then would be no problem.

At least Chris admits that the pre-election pledge by Clegg was dishonest: "It was pretty obvious we were never going to win an election outright, so would either be in coalition or in opposition. Either way we would not be able to stop a fees rise going through."

Read it while you can, before it disappears.

Even now, they just don't get it do they.
