Ministry of Truth?

Now, I'm against all government funding for education and so on, but don't you find it extraordinary that the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills is responsible for Universities? What happened to an Education Department? Oh, they abolished that so as to make the Government in charge of Children and Families! Are universities just about skills and economic competitiveness? Grump grump.

And doesn't the Department for Innovation and Skills begin to sound just a bit 1984 to you?

The Department for Innovation sounds doomed to failure. I have visions of bureaucrats going round shouting at people, 'Innovate! Innovate! Now!'
