Nul points for website entrants

19th March 2004 at 00:00
Apologies all round to those of you who entered our competition to guess the date when the Learning and Skills Council's website managers would get round to providing something for "youth" and "adult learners".

You will remember I was offering a bottle of champagne to the reader who came up with the closest guess. Sadly, the local Oddbins here in Wapping remains a FErret-free zone because both these channels are still to be given any content.

The new website was launched last July but, sadly, if any of the quango's ultimate customers try to log on as a "youth" or an "adult learner" they will find there's nothing for them.

Watch this space.
