Simon Hughes MP backed the scrapping of the Educational Maintenance Allowance which helps nearly 3,300 Southwark young people. And he did not vote against the trebling of tuition fees. He is supporting massive cuts in public service jobs, a VAT increase, and draconian cuts in housing benefits. And now he has agreed to be the coalition's front man to put out a caring message. People in Southwark want principal not propaganda. It is not a message they need, but jobs - that Simon Hughes is cutting.
