Countdown conundrum

According to the Guardian, the snow prevented David Cameron and Carol Vorderman's PR stunt at Haberdashers, planned for today.

"The Conservative leader, David Cameron, had to cancel a visit to Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham college, an academy in New Cross, south-east London, where he was due to highlight a package of proposals aimed at improving numeracy, including a maths taskforce headed by the former Countdown host, Carol Vorderman."

Vorderman is uniquely qualified to lead such a project, having capitalised on her adding-up skills to trouser a fortune plugging loan companies to the innumerate.
