I went there at a time when you could go. My parents wouldn’t have been able to afford to send me to university or art school. And I went at a time you got a grant to go there.
It may sound nightmarish to some people now, but the government paid for you to be educated, because they believed it was a civic responsibility. And I certainly would not be here, being Doctor Who, if they hadn’t done that.
So I find it alarming that we live in an age where it doesn’t work like that any more. That we don’t think as a society, it is worthwhile paying to help people be educated, and become the best they can be.
