Out of the mouths of babes and infants

Quite literally, in this case.

The government's removing several billion pounds from higher education. But they're putting £150 million in a fund for poorer students to go to university (not sure how there are going to be enough teachers if they all choose business and law).

Where's it coming from? You'll love this.

Michael Gove's taking the money from the free school meals budget. Half a million children of the poor can go hungry.

The government will announce a £150m bursary system to encourage the most deprived students to apply, money that will be saved by scrapping free school meals to half a million primary schoolchildren.

What can I say? Tory Scum.

It's quite clever, actually, in a 'Let them eat cake' sort of way: if they haven't died of malnutrition by the time they reach 18, then they can fight it out amongst themselves to see who gets to go to college. Quite inspired, really. A bit like a modern day version of the Roman aristocrats watching the gladiators tear each other to shreds for their (the aristo's, obviously) entertainment.
