Stewart Lee speaks of the massive implication of raised university fees in the UK.
What he says so eloquently really epitomises why so many of us fear for the future when these actions affect the current young generation.
Knowledge, education and the arts are fundamentally vital for society. Learning from history, exploring the potentials of science, gaining a further exploration of ourselves, our society and the expression of what it is to 'be' via the arts makes us human.
The cuts are affecting us all, but I fear slashing education and the arts in such a dramatic way will have more of an impact than we can comprehend at the moment. Give it 20 years; when we can't correct the damage.
It is not a luxury.
