are the reasons there's a skills gap. I was made redundant from a general IT and software support role (off-shored to India) over a year ago, but all the companies (over 500) I have approached want people who are already good at the role they have vacant. No one seems willing to spend money and train a potentially suitable candidate with the lacking skills.

I think the lack of a point played every part in its downfall - those that can surf the web can use things like iPlayer, 4od etc etc, and with a little step froward can grab everything via torrents. What compelling reason did they offer Joe Public to use or even pay for their service?
