That was how Universities Minister David Willetts announced coalition plans to increase tuition fees in England to up to £9,000 a year. National Union of Students President Aaron Porter responded:
"This is utterly unacceptable and an outrage which could decimate access into our university system."
Increasing the cap on tuition fees has become one of the government's most controversial plans and the backlash from student unions is set to continue today with more protests across the country.
