There has been lots of concern today about the apparent plan by Universities Minister David Willetts to allow universities to create extra places and allow companies, charities and the rich to buy their way in.
Such a scheme would inevitably come at a cost to places for poorer, but no less bright students.
I'm very glad that it appears that the Prime Minister has quashed the plan.
I was going to write a long post on the subject, but will simply point you instead to my friend Mark Valladares who sums up my views perfectly. You can read his post here.
