Head to Head: Tuition Fees

Head to Head: Tuition Fees

“An investigation is underway into post 18 education, with speculation that some degrees could be cut to £6,500, whilst others, namely science, could be raised. Recent conversations have also focussed on the increasingly high pay of vice chancellors and other senior staff. Given the fact that UK universities are the most expensive in Europe, the question of abolishing tuition fees is never too far from the surface.”

Head to Head: Trident

“Trident came into the UK’s possession in the early 1980’s as a replacement for the Polaris missile system; it consists of submarines, missiles and warheads.

Head to Head: Universal Basic Income

Universal Basic Income (UBI), a policy whereby every individual receives a non-conditional flat-rate payment, is a divisive topic; it has been trialled in places as diverse as the US, Kenya, Scotland and Finland. Whilst some see it as the solution to, among other things, a broken and dysfunctional welfare system, others strongly oppose the idea. Founder of Labour Basic Income, George Ablett, and TalkPolitics Campaign Agent, Lyell Tweed, go head to head on the issue.
