Or just a senior government adviser? I said some time back that the new "diploma" scheme wasn't the way to improve the education service. Now we find that universities don't like it either.
Seems like most people around the country know certain things years before the government works them out. Here are my top five (in reverse order):
5) The Olympics is going to cost more than everybody thinks.
4) These diplomas aren't going to take off. Good schools will start offering baccalaureates.
3) Rail fares are going to keep going up and this is going to reduce the number of travelers on the trains, and increase cars on the roads.
2) The government is eventually going to force through unlimited random detentions and ID cards, which no-one wants.
And at number 1...) The war in Iraq is going to go on and on and when we do eventually pull out, whether that's next year or in ten years time, they are going to have a civil war.
And there isn't a party out there I can vote for who are going to fix these huge, obvious problems. Maybe I should run myself. Cru for PM...?!
