The Tories' Need for Speed

The federal government goes into the gaming business:

The online description of one of the games reads, “Compete at the highest level of street racing with Need for Speed ProStreet. It’s no longer good enough to simply rule your local neighborhood; you need to dominate on a global stage.”

The government placed ads in a number of video games during February and March of this year. The ads were part of an attempt to encourage young people to complete their apprenticeship training and alert them to grants of up to $4,000.

Because the little darlings can't be expected to, you know, find out this information themselves. A government big enough to give you apprenticeships, is big enough to invade your video games.
