Reader’s comment: Toxic student fees


In response to Laura Perrins: With values like these, no wonder The Youth are depressed, Dacorum wrote:

‘It found that a staggering 49 per cent of adults aged 25-39 say they can never see themselves voting Conservative at the next general election, and just 9 per cent say they are certain to do so. That is 49 per cent of The Youth saying there is zero chance of them voting Tory. That detoxification went well then.’

The Tories can only blame themselves for making themselves toxic with the young due to their policy of trebling student fees and charging interest rates of 3 per cent over inflation, a rate greatly in excess of mortgage rates! No graduate in their right mind would ever vote Conservative when the Tories have increased their income tax rates by 9 per cent for every pound they earn over the threshold for paying back their student loan for most of their working lives. There are also many parents and even grandparents who did not vote Conservative last time because of student fees for their children and grandchildren.
