A group of Liberal Democrat MPs are calling for the Commons vote on Thursday to be postponed with a view to a wider review of Higher Education funding, according to reports in the Guardian and the New Statesman. (See also Michael White’s blog today on the Lib Dem split). Lib Dem MP Greg Mulholland is quoted as saying: “Sometimes the most courageous thing to do is to admit you need a rethink. The best thing for higher education is not to force this vote through on Thursday.”
At Labour List, Jon Wilson criticises the ‘commodification’ of Higher Education.
