Lets not forget the most painful surrender to the American's, when Balir got in to office and handed over the entire UK education system to Bill Gates in return for a photo opportunity outside number 10 and a sound bite on that days news.

Almost over night our world leading an innovative IT teaching was replaced with the rote training of Microsoft Office drones, sucking vast budgets from schools for licences, and support teams.

The reward for putting the final nail in the coffin of Acorn and costing UK buisness more in lost productivity than industrial action in the 70s - a KBE. Arise Sir Gates of Windows, and UK IT rest in peace.
