Abstract

The student protests on the 10th November and the forthcoming demonstrations around the parliamentary vote on 9 December, have brought the opposition to the government’s proposed changes to university funding to the forefront of national debate. The UK’s National Union of Students’ President Aaron Porter argues that now is the time to engage in longer-term campaigning and lobbying to get student voices’ heard, through an innovative ‘Right to Recall’ campaign that would sack parliamentarians who broke campaign promises on tuition fees.
