University professor wants graduates taxed more

Professor King of Dundee university said
"...Nevertheless, we must recognise that as well as society benefiting from a well-educated workforce, so too does the graduate. The repayment of an element of the tuition fee - along with any loan - when the earnings of the graduate contributor allow, is a viable alternative. This would overcome the politically sensitive issue of fees/no fees and would, if only modestly, protect the financial position of universities."

He fails to realise that the graduate will pay more TAX anyway, if he or she secures a better paid job, why should he support the governments attitude in London to double-dip and OVERTAX the very people Scotland needs to secure its place in 21st century technological and engineering innovation?
