SINCE the opening lines of the How it is Done television programme and the horror stories of cowboy builders, it has given me some time for reflection about the working world we thought we knew by experience but are beginning to see in reality.
I wonder how much money saved and scraped together by our youngsters is just thrown away because of these ‘builders’ using guesswork.
On this TV show I have seen hopes unfulfilled because of guesswork – typical of the times we live in?
It is how we think that matters, but is education preparing our youngsters to see these things rather than them scratching for the glint of gold that they hope will one day appear but never does.
Don’t they deserve something better?
