It's a Tory/Lib Dem innovation. What else did we expect? (Sorry, I'm a little burned out on the Coalition, especially as regards education policy).

I agree that the debt burden is far less great on UK students than on Americans by nature of the terms of repayment, and was rather intending to note the difference between Cat's experience of tuition fees of £1,000 for domestic students a decade ago with fees 9 times that now (that's a rate of increase even American universities haven't hit! ;-) ). It leads to a slightly different comparison (the nature of the debt rather than the amount, which was Cat's original point), although it certainly still privileges UK students at domestic universities. Unless one is Scottish, in which case one gets a free ride tuition-wise (I wonder what Prince William with his Balmoral residence counted as...).
