Gavin Williamson warned about people being promoted beyond their competence and everyone made the same joke
Education secretary Gavin Williamson isn’t having a good A-Level results day. In fact, it’s hard to imagine how it could possibly be any worse.
Williamson said people would have ‘taken advantage’ if he hadn’t controversially cut students’ A-level grades, and warned about the dangers of people being promoted beyond their competence.
