An Office for Non-Students

Posted on

I don’t always agree with Matt Chorley, who writes The Times’ Red Box email (which is always worth reading and is free) but this is good, re Toby Young from this morning's mail:

The pressure on Toby Young continues. The PM put him on notice that he will be dismissed from his new job at the Office for Students if he makes further offensive comments.

The furore will roll on, but I can't help thinking the energy would be better directed at demanding an Office for Non-Students, for the 50 per cent of young people who, like me, did not go to university, and are badly served by teachers and careers advisers.

I agree: that would be a vastly better use of all the energy involved.
