Miliband gives a tax cut to the rich..

At the same Q & A meeting in Manchester this afternoon, Mr Miliband also committed Labour to reducing the maximum tuition fee at English Universities to £6000 from the current £9000.

At a stroke the Labour leader just gave a £3000 tax cut to the wealthiest and most able students in the country - the people who in 20 years time will occupy the top jobs in British society. A tax cut for the rich. How 'fair' or 'progressive' is that?
