The main argument of those opposing the scrapping of tuition fees in England is where to find the money to fund free higher education.
Looking at a list of European countries where there are no tuition fees or a little charge, one can see that these countries have gone bankrupt and their education system has collapsed because they provide "free" higher education.

That is less than a tenth of the billions lost beause of tax evasion.
The real reason of keeping the tuition fees in England of £9,250+ is that consecutive goverments have adopted the most aggressive "neo-liberal" social-economic system in Europe, where the fundamentalist "free-market" ideology reigns supreme.
The structure of the socio-political system has made many oppose free education on tha basis that their taxes shouldn't pay for the education of those who cannot afford to pay. A reflection of how the fostering of individualistic mentality, one of the aspects of the "neo-liberal era", is more prevalent in England.
