Tuition fees and Messy Business - Extra ......£9000..Extra.............£9000

Increase in tuition fees
Vince Cable came under renewed criticism today for apparently changing his mind over whether he would vote for a rise in tuition fees or not.
Vince Cable came under renewed criticism today over the government's proposed hike in university tuition fees after making apparently contradictory statements on his stance on the issue.
The business secretary, who is responsible for getting the fees legislation through parliament, said in an interview published yesterday that he would vote in favour of lifting the cap on annual tuition fees in England to up to £9,000, but later again indicated he could abstain on the controversial policy.
In an interview published in the Richmond and Twickenham Times, Cable said he had "no doubt" that he should vote in favour of the fees rise, in an apparent reversal of his comments last week that he might abstain in next Thursday's vote. "Obviously I have a duty as a minister to vote for my own policy – and that is what will happen," Cable told the paper.
