    All Change At The Top

    Mandelson takes charge of universities | Education | guardian.co.uk

    Looks like Jim Knight has gone and major change to FE/HE side of things. It shame to see Jim Knight go he did quite well bringing education sectors together. Also way implemented lot of the policies made sense even if policies themselves didn't.

    They're always changing stuff, why can't they leave things alone? I don't trust the government at all any more...honestly... I'm thinking of staging a coup, anyone up for it?

    Meanwhile, it's time to listen to some more Rage Against the Machine...

    lol indeed The irony of all this is Gordan Brown may not even have much time left in office and if that happens, the new PM may want to reshuffle a second time! Just a thought

    Plotting how to get PM?

    The really frightening thing is that the Labour Party is unelectable at the moment, which only leaves the Tories... I'd rather have him --->

    Please do not rob me of my favourite expression...

    I'm sure I heard a comedian say once "You can't polish a turd. You can lacquer it... but you can't polish it".

    Oh yes... It was Stewart Lee (he's brilliant!)

    I'd vote for him!!

    Did anyone see the local election results? The Tories and the Lib Dems wiped the floor with Labour. Brown should do us a favour and go away!
