Would I have gone to uni under our current government?

It would now seem that I was very lucky indeed to go to university when I did. I owe quite a bit to Jenny and Jane back at South Cheshire College: they were the ones who first suggested I start to think about going. I always thought I would leave it until I was much older. Had I done so, it now seems I might never have gone. The Tories have now appointed Toby Young as universities regulator, a man famously opposed to inclusive education, and who thinks wheelchair ramps are an eyesore. With such a dogmatic tory prick now in charge of unis, I now fear students with disabilities will start to become discouraged from going into higher education. Young will attempt to refocus admissions policies to favour a kind of narrow elitism, meaning students like the one I was simply won't get a chance. The tories are now slowly wrecking the culture of inclusion and tolerance Labour did so much to foster. How lucky I was to go to university, and get so much out of it, when I did.
