Letter to the Kent Messenger on the Maidstone's sudent protesters and congrats to Kent Green, Aaron Keily for getting a mention!
Maidstone's students should be congratulated for doorstepping Helen Grant's office as part of the protests about the student fee rises. Once again the Tories are restricting education choices to the rich and excluding students from more modest families. Selection by wealth is a straightforward way to increase inequalities in our already unequal society.
Of course, we should expect little better from the Conservatives but the real scandal is the way that the Lib Dems have refused to stand by their pledges. Their U-Turn is an affront to democracy and they should be hanging their heads in shame.
