Ignore Andrew Adonis
Out of the house and in the car at 8am to drive to the University of Glamorgan in Treforest to take part in an all-party panel in front of a Conference of Welsh student sabbatical officers at 9.30am! In my day respectable students did not surface much before 11am on the Sunday of a Welsh student conference and yet we have a two thirds turnout. Obviously today's student is a much hardier breed. I am handed a post card to send to Tony Blair asking him to abandon his policy of introducing top-up fees. There is a helpful postscript - "P.S. Ignore Andrew Adonis". This is a policy that many of us advocated when he was in the Liberal Democrats.
