Politicians …. are they annoying you too!
I am up to my ears with politicians. This constant knee jerk reaction to a problem, then the other side doing anything to get attention… its marketing at its most annoying.
What the hell am I rambling on about… Well just today I heard Nick Clegg on his latest bandwagon that poor people need to get into posh universities.
I have a problem with this statement on a number of levels:
- I think it’s so condescending, it says over and over again that people (like me) who don’t go to university are never going to succeed and now they need to go to a top university … I am sure we all have a list of great successes that never went to university…
- Our education system needs to change, we need to teach people about entrepreneurship, not about finding jobs, with the improvements in robotics and automation, there will be less and less need to employ anyone.
- And of course I just find the language so condescending!
I am not against people winning scholarships, as long as they get in on merit and not on sympathy.
