While wandering around the MoD website I came across the Foundation Degree page and became instantly gnarled, bitter and twisted. Why couldn't I have had the use of a facility like that back when I was trying my damnedest to drink the Herforder brewery out of business? But this is the thin edge of the wedge; next it'll be degrees and postgrad qualifications as a professional requirement for WOs in the technical and more shineybummed trades. Disgraceful. Don't know what the Army's coming to, I really don't.
