The way that I remember things might not actually be as they happened. I accept that. However, I am sure that I recall the UK Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, promising to scrap all student debt prior to the last UK election.
Now, a mere seven weeks after the election, in the 24th July Metro newspaper:
"We didn't say we'd write off student debts"
JEREMY CORBIN insisted yesterday that he never promised to write of all student debt - despite saying he would 'deal with it' during the General Election campaign.
The Labour leader, shown by opninion polls to enjoy huge support among young people, told the BBC he was unaware of how much writing off loans would cost when he made his previous comments. He was accused by the Tories of 'betraying' graduates by backtracking.
I realize that politics is all weasel words, innuendos, double meanings and "it depends what the meaning of the word 'is' is"
So, can anyone point to somewhere that Corbyn did actually say that?
