After last week’s ‘Jamiegate’ affair the Tories’ higher education education spokesman is back in the news for the right reasons.  According to The Daily Telegraph, Boris Johnson wants the most successful students at universities to be given cash rewards  as both an incentive for students to work harder and to discourage universities from offering so many first class degrees.  Mr Johnson hopes that businesses and alumni would provide for the funds for these rewards and for more scholarships for subjects that find it hard to recruit.
