Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the Liberal Democrats has appealed to his fellow MP's to 'all lie together' in the upcoming vote to increase Student fees.
'I wouldn't lie with him for a million pounds' LibDem Minister, Norman Baker, told me in a private interview. Baker intends to resign so he can spend more time making bread.
But Clegg is adamant: 'If we all stick together over this our credibility will be assured. Future generations will see how brave and principled we have been. A pledge from us will be treated with the respect it deserves.'
'As one of the future generation' assured one radical student currently sitting in as a protest against the increase in student fees 'I can confidentially tell Clegg that we think he is a snivelling two faced shit. The only principle he has is to stick onto power come what may. The brave thing to do would be to honour the LibDem pledge made before the election and vote against the proposed legislation.'
David Davis, the Conservative MP who stood against David Cameron in the election to be Tory leader and lost, has also said he will vote against the measure. 'This policy is losing us the support of a massive number of students and school children, who anticipate a lifetime of debt if they go to University. The fig leaf of free education for children who are getting free school meals is going to be useless when we end free school meals after the vote. Universities will just not select these students if they have to pay any of their fees.'
