Prat of The Week - Dave Willetts

Ooh er missus, it has been a wee while since I have awarded a Prat (or Prats) of The Week Award, therefore without further ado here it is.

This week it goes to an individual, David "Two Brains" Willetts (Nanny's higher education minister, whose nickname derives from the fact that people regard him as being very intelligent).

Anyhoo, Two Brains was applying his intellect to the issue of those who are in their sixties who still need to work in order to be able to live.

His solution was simple and "brilliant", they should go to university in order to obtain new skills; thus they would stand a better chance of being employed, or of simply keeping their jobs.


How would these silver haired students pay for their education?

Study loans.....just like the youngsters!

Therefore, at the end of three years or so at university a sixty something graduate will leave with around £27K of debt.

What are their chances of being employed?

Well, based on the fact that 20 year old graduates are having problems finding work, I would say fark all.

So what happens to the £27K debt then?

No income, no need to to pay back!


Money and time well spent!

Dave "Two Brains" Willetts, well deserving Prat of The Week.

    The expression "Engage brain (or both in his case)before opening mouth" springs to mind.

    He should change his nickname from 'Two Brains' to 'Two Brain Cells'.

    But you forget, Willetts lives in a world where 27K is a good night out and a job is a six-figure one day a month directorship.

    A well deserved award!

    I had the same thoughts as your good self Ken when I saw the story.

    For me, this disproves the old saying: Two brains are better than one.......Mind you, if ever we develop the ability to do brain transplants, Mr Willett's brains will be very valuable given that they've hardly been used!

    When looking for a job a lifetime of experience is useless compared to a degree in media studies issued by a second rate university.
