Rarely in the life of the Blair Labour Government has education caused such drama. The survival of the Government's plans for higher education funding, by a wafer-thin majority of five, brings to a temporary halt the excitement of recent weeks. This 'Wanna Argument' looks at the key issues involved in the plans to charge top-up fees for higher education. Our familiar 'talking heads' debate the main points, examining the UK's problem in relation to the international picture; finding out what's wrong with the current position and asking if we have ever had a 'free' higher education system.
