Blair wants ex-students to fund universities | Uk News | News | Telegraph

Universities would collapse without tuition fees and must now seek to find a third major source of income through fund-raising, Tony Blair says today.

Business, former students and philanthropists can help provide funds to expand higher education and ensure universities are in a position to compete internationally, he says.

Mr Blair, writing in The Daily Telegraph, urges universities in this country to follow the example of those in America.

May I make so bold as to point out one teensy difference, in the US the successful ex-students and businesses haven't already had their pips squeaked by the taxman. they have some money of their own left to spend and their taxman looks favourably on their largesse.


At least he's sincere for once: he's sent one of his boys to Yale.
