There is a delicious irony in the news that McDonald's, purveyor of all things that Nanny hates, will award their own qualifications equal to GCSEs, A levels and degrees, in subjects such as fast-food restaurant management.
Ever keen to be in the limelight, Gordon "Smiler" Brown is even backing the initiative.
How hypocritical and how very typical of this government!
Those with Nannyish tendencies who criticise McDonald's for doing this should remember this; now that we as a country have abandoned any pretence of being involved in manufacturing, this is as close as anyone will get these days to an apprenticeship.
