A road run over a known route seemed the best option today. I knew the time I had available and the time the run would take and so from a duration perspective this route fitted the bill. The route took me round the Grandhome country route which involved only road running. Comments and rants tended to concentrate on Conservative Party claims and problems with the Education system.

Discussion touched on the recent claim by George Osborne that the Conservative Party would be a progressive force in British politics. His claim that radical approaches would be implemented in various different areas including in Education to improve these systems whilst also decreasing cost was of course disputed.

General deficiencies within the Education system and the lack of general success by all parties within the Education area were highlighted.

It was also suggested that Conservative privatisation of previously nationalised industries such as telecommunications has resulted in the UK falling behind other countries in terms of supply of a suitable broadband infrastructure to meet the needs of the 21st Century.
