In outlining the Liberal Democrat’s 2015 General Election offering, Nick Clegg promised ‘one of our front-page manifesto commitments will be to protect the education budget from nursery to 19-year-olds, from cradle to college’. In adopting the phrase ‘from Cradle to College’ he also unintentionally highlighted a sharp contrast with his party’s promise at the 2010 Election to abolish tuition fees for higher education in England on the basis they were ‘wrong’ and ‘unfair’.
