What the frothing-at-the-mouth report fails to mention is that the punishing is being done by the Fib Dem-Tory coalition in London.
The intro in particular captured that very special resentment the Daily Mail does so well:
Britain was facing a future of tuition fees apartheid last night as Welsh students were told they will be exempt from higher charges.
Apartheid? Really? So presumably the ability of some people to pay £30,000 a year to ensure their kids get a privileged school education at Eton is also a class-based apartheid. Or is that somehow different?
If it wasn't such a laughable and unsustainable argument, using the term "apartheid" would be hugely offensive to those who fought that racist regime.
The atmosphere in Daily Mail towers must be so splenetic that one sub, who wrote the picture captions got completely carried away:
'Revolution': Police with riot shields stand at the base of a graffiti-daubed Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square last night. The news Welsh students will have their fees subsidised threatens to trigger fresh protests
Now I wonder who's going to protest? The NUS has welcomed the move as have the university lecturers' union UCU. The only protests it's likely to spark is from the Fib Dem backbenchers who must be pig sick of being outmanoeuvred at every turn.
