UFI/Learndirect - reports of death greatly exaggerated
Michael Gove's endless, faulty lists were clearly a sign of his inexperience. This is what happens when ideology overrides good sense. To rob the budget for repairing existing schools to pay for new schools for middle-class lobby groups is madness beyond reason.
But this is not the only gaff made by the new Government. Vince Cable, or at least his department BIS, has mistakenly announced the abolition of UFI/Learndirect, not once but twice. The first was on 24 May, which popped up, rather surprisingly on my alerts, then recinded. The second was on Monday 19 July in an official press release from the COI, on behalf of BIS. As Mark Twain said, discovering that his obituary had been published in the New York Journal, "Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated" but having your obituary published twice seems, well.......odd!
