    The old adage of the UK being a nation of shop keepers is fast becoming the uk being a nation of shelf stackers.

    I don't understand why that union chap keeps going on about skills. If the skills were required then Rover would not have shut down? If they are so highly skilled how come only one so far has managed to get a job at tescos? If they are so highly skilled how come so many are on training courses?

    Please explain if I am missing something here...

    Pretty simple really. They were skilled at making Rover cars. Not much call for that these days.:\

    Default Highly Unskilled

    Friend of mine worked at Rover until the bitter end. He reckoned that of the 6,000 odd employees maybe one or two hundred could be called "highly skilled" and by that he meant they knew how to use a PC, attend site meetings, and supervise staff. He said most of the others were "skilled" in as much as it is a skill knowing how to wander around with a screwdriver tightening the occasional loose screw.

    Having driven a few Rovers I can confirm they were not very skilled at all. I can see quite a few struggling with the concept of putting a tin of baked beans on a shelf.
    Praise be to Ms Hodge and her overactive gob for confirming that the policy of this Government is to turn GB PLC into a nation of shelf stackers and burger flippers. We were right all along. Now, where did I put that 'Plan B'...?
