Education, Education, Education

Leg-Iron has noticed an interesting co-incidence, while thinking about Labour's record on education:
One in five adults is illiterate in the UK. If you've ever wondered why Labour's poll rating never goes below twenty percent, consider the coincidence in those figures.
Perhaps I should explain that one in five is the same as twenty percent since it appears that forty percent are innumerate too.
No wonder there's so little fuss about the government's money-wasting ways. Two in five don't know what the numbers mean.
And there's the crucial point. I've said before that Labour might be idiotic but they're not stupid. If you're going to screw things up, and do so right royally, you'd be best advised to spend the preceding ten years producing a generation of voters who can't tell the difference.
