Computer glitch deprives poor of money
It seems that the Scottish executive is completely computer ignorant. We have the
ongoing school exams fiasco caused by a poorly written, PRIVATE company-Scottish
executive sponsored team and now European cash to help the disadvantaged is
NOT being doled out.
The glitch affects some 1500 applicants vying for a
share of £312m of European Social Fund money .
