Wat Tyler's "Burning our Money" is one of the very best British blogs. I have never understood why the British media don't do "what the government does with your money" slots, as routinely happens in the US. Wat fills that gap.
Today, he demonstrates statistically what a balls-up comprehensive education has been. As a victim, I can only say "hear, hear". No nation is so rich in talent as to squander it on the scale Britain does.
