The Cult of University, Ctd "Lets stop being so snobbish about people working with their hands"

The leader of Ukip, Nigel Farage said on the Friday 30 2013 episode of Any Questions hosted by Nick  Robinson:

"Clearly we do have a problem with some of our young people and that problem is through a failure of education and through an absolute insistence that as many people as possible must go to university and get a degree in an '-ology' of some kind. I blame Maureen Lippmann for the whole thing myself. 

And it might actually be better if with more of our youngsters we encourage them, perhaps aged 16, to go and learn some trades and skills and we stop being so snobbish about people working with their hands [massive round of applause]. That to me would be a very good thing."
