The first postcard...
... that I received yesterday was jointly from Communities Scotland and Learndirect Scotland - both offshoots of the Scottish Executive and both funded by yours truly. I am being offered "help with reading writing or numbers". The Scottish Executive has destroyed this country's once-proud education system and is now hiring yet more bureaucrats to sort out the result.
If I call 0808 100 1080 I can get help with "handling bills and bank statements". Should I pass the number on to Gordon Brown?
