Alex Cole-Hamilton's speech on tuition fees to Scottish Liberal Democrat Conference

Following on from yesterday's post, here's Alex Cole-Hamilton telling Scottish Liberal Democrat Conference last Saturday why we should vote down the amendment calling for a graduate tax.

In his he recalls how proud he was of the Liberal Democrats for standing up to Labour on this issue and how the graduate endowment was simply to help poorer students. It was not spent on paying for tuition in any way.

The clip is worth watching just for the images of Richard Baker producing draconian legislation in iambic pentameter.

So with my degree in economics I should clearly be leaving the CSR to others to dissect then ;)

Curious, Stephen published my comment.

It isn't libellous or abusive, so..
