…A question Osborne elected to dodge…

    7×7 is 49 add 7 is 56. Can I be Chancellor of the Exchequer now? No? Then why does the question matter?

      When I was at school we had the tables drummed into us. We memorised them – no need for calculation. Today, nurses graduate from university unable to say how many 15mg doses make 30mg.

        …..We had to stand in front of class and recite the tables, individually!..Terror was instilled in us, but, I can still do the tables up to 12x tables, in my head!

          Me too. We also had the whole class stand up and each was given a random sum. If you got it wrong you had to sit down. Repeat until only one person was standing. We did the same with spelling. Unfortunately, you can’t have winners nowadays.

            Recent poll showed Obama voted the worst US President since WWII just ahead of Bush Jnr. Obviously the “liberal” left US media have had more success at disseminating their modified US history than the BBC has had.

      I met FW de Klerk after his retirement. He was quite open about the fact that politicians in general know fuck-all about anything and “technocrats”, like a doctor as minister of health or an ex-general as minister of defence are positively dangerous as a politician’s job is all about brokering dodgy deals and an expert is far less likely to allow w@ankers their say or participation, however unwanted, which just creates divisiveness. He did point out that Lawyers excel at politics as that is the key profession used to accepting that the truth is highly flexible and facts are whatever you want them to be.

    A racist floppy speaks says:

    President Robert Mugabe has declared that no white person will be allowed to own land except for companies as stipulated in the laws of the country.

    Mugabe said Wednesday while launching the Model A1 Settlement Permit at Chipfundi Farm Lions’ Den in Mashonaland West.

    “They can own industries and companies or stay in apartments in our towns but cannot own land. We hear in some cases they are being protected by cabinet ministers and politicians within their constituencies. We will deal with that,” said Mugabe.

    “One of the major objectives of the liberation struggle was to evict the white settlers from the land since they had the option of going back to their countries of origin,” he said. – See more at: http://bulawayo24.com/index-id-news-sc-national-byo-49953.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed: Bulawayo24News (Bulawayo24 News)#sthash.mrRtJZyR.dpuf
