Possible Image[edit]

Some photos of candidates signing the pledgeare available on the NUS website. I've never added an image to wikipedia and don't really understand the copyright regulations, so I'd appreciate help from a more experienced editor. The photo of Clegg signing would seem the most noteworthy of them, but I'm not sure whether it would make the article too biased, as it would focus attention on the possibility that Clegg is breaking his promise to students. What do you think?--Hermajesty21 (talk) 16:47, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Bias[edit]

I just think it's really an anti Lib Dem rant, just look at the timing of the article's creation. It seems to make no mention of the Lib Dem backing it to gain concessions from the Conservatives, or the way the fees will be paid back. AJUK Talk!! 21:55, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

I didn't go into detail about the new tuition fees structure as I already added this to Browne Review, the proposals are wikilinked from this article, and they are covered in Tuition fees (UK). If you think a sentence or two should be added for balance, then we can do that.--Physics is all gnomes (talk) (Previously Hermajesty21) 22:01, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
PS. The timing of the article creation was simply because that was the time that the pledge started to get significant coverage in newspapers. Before that time it might not have been noteworthy and it would not have had enough independent sources.--Physics is all gnomes (talk) 22:06, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

It's not an "anti Lib Dem rant" if everything in the article is a fact. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.45.19.42 (talk) 13:38, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
