An independent commission has been set up to examine the impact of increased tuition fees in England.
A panel led by the writer and Oxford University principal Will Hutton will work closely with the university admissions body Ucas.
It says it will look especially at the effect of higher fees on young people from low and middle income backgrounds.
In context, isn’t it obvious that an increase in cost will create a negative response?
A metaphor comes to mind that has the words Kicking, whilst and down within it.
