Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I mean, when they say they don't have qualified computer science people coming out of the universities, are they saying people come out of university functionally illiterate (not being able to learn a new computer system/language in a relatively short period of time, on the job)?

They're saying that the typical UK comp sci graduate knows Java and perhaps Flash, but has no experience of C/C++/etc, assembler, or deep hardware engineering - never mind clever stuff like kernel hacking or compiler design.
