As I sat at the wonderful RAC club last night listening to Lord Digby Jones it struck me that I had heard some of his words before so today with a little bit of research I found an article about the levels of illiteracy in the UK and the huge impact our businesses to compete in a global market, but the election campaign was not this years but the one in 2010.

I am sad to say that nothing has happened to impact the levels of the numbers of adults in this country who cannot read and write and those that have little or no skills.

If we cannot educate our children for the future they will inhabit then we are failing them and all the next genearations, lets hope the next five years see somthing radical happening.
