Tuition tangle tests mettle of British coalition
vote today on
proposed tripling of
university tuition fees
LONDON (AP) - Britain's coali-
tion government faces a reality
check today when lawmakers vote
on an unpopular proposal to triple
university tuition fees, a plan that
has brought students into the streets
protesting about a broken campaign
The vote poses a crucial test of
the viability of the Conservative-led
partnership with the Liberal Demo-
crats and casts an uncomfortable
spotlight on Deputy Prime Minister
Nick Clegg, who like other Liberal
Democrat candidates signed a pre-
election pledge to oppose any such
In the coalition agreement,
the Liberal Democrats reserved
the right to abstain in any vote to
raise tuition fees. That created an
awkward position for Business
Secretary Vince Cable, a Liberal
Democrat, who at one point sug-
gested he might abstain from voting
for the proposal eventhough itcame
from his office.
While Some Liberal Democrats
in the House of Commons have
declared their opposition, but that is
unlikelyto blockthe hike.
"The real danger for the govern-
ment is not that they won't pass it
through, but that it will be a policy
fiasco," said Patrick Dunleavy, pro-
fessor of political science at the Lon-
don School of Economics.
"By picking this fight with the
student body ... the government
seems to have gotten itself into
choppy water," he said.
All of this has made Clegg one of
the least popular politicians on uni-
Prime Minister David Cameron's
government defends the move as
a painful necessity to deal with a
record budget deficit and a sputter-
ing economy. To balance its books,
the U.K. passed a four-year package
of spending cuts worth 81 billion
pounds ($128 billion), which will
lead to the loss of hundreds of thou-
sands of public sector jobs and cut
or curtail hundreds of government
The government proposed rais-
ing the maximum university tuition
fees in England from 3,000 pounds
(about $4,700) a year to 9,000
pounds (about $14,000). Students
reacted with mass protests that
have been marred by violence and
have paralyzed some campuses.
Reacting to the protests, the gov-
ernment modified its plan by raising
