HUNDREDS of angry students launched an attack on the Liberal Democrats and Nick Clegg yesterday as they protested in Edinburgh against the rise in tuition fees in England and education cuts.

Chanting to “no ifs, no buts, no education cuts” and “Nick Clegg same on you, shame on you for turning blue” the students marched from Bristo Square outside Edinburgh University’s Student Union building to the Scottish Parliament building.

The march was a last ditch attempt to persuade MP’s not to vote in favour of a rise in tuition fees down south.

If plans are to go ahead, English universities could be allowed to charge up to £9,000 in fees which will raise the cap by almost treble.
