Why doesn't Miliband blow his nose before going on the telly?

 

He tried that once using a bacon sandwich. Didn't go too well.

Peever is a Tory.

 

He wants independence.

 

If only he was typical of all Scottish Tories, our country would be a much different place.

I found some data from the EU:
 
Distribution of 15-year-old students according to the number of hours a week they report spending on homework and study at home, public and private sectors combined, 2009:
 
EU Average:

  • No Time or less than 2 hours: Language of instruction - 89.7%; Maths - 83.9%; Science - 89.0%
  • Between 2 and 4 hours: Language of instruction - 5.8%; Maths - 10.6%; Science - 6.6%
  • More than 4 hours: Language of instruction - 4.5%; Maths - 5.5%; Science - 4.4%

UK (not including Scotland) Average:

  • No Time or less than 2 hours: Language of instruction - 91.4%; Maths - 89.2%; Science - 89.0%
  • Between 2 and 4 hours: Language of instruction - 4.9%; Maths - 6.3%; Science - 5.2%
  • More than 4 hours: Language of instruction - 3.7%; Maths - 4.5%; Science - 5.9%

Scotland Average:

  • No Time or less than 2 hours: Language of instruction - 89.7%; Maths - 86.7%; Science - 88.4%
  • Between 2 and 4 hours: Language of instruction - 6.8%; Maths - 9.2%; Science - 8.0%
  • More than 4 hours: Language of instruction - 3.5%; Maths - 4.0%; Science - 3.5%

My school wants us to spend 3-4 hours (or 15-20 hours per week) a night doing school work.  :lol:

 

There is no point doing extra studying for Maths and Science. You can either do it or you can't. If you are one of the unlucky folk who can't then just pick easier subjects like psychology or history and the likes.

I do seem to remember seeing fishy related things in quite a few SNP manifestos over the years. Couldn't tell you what they were or if they were related to the EU right enough.

 

With leaders called Sturgeon and Salmon it's hardly surprising that there might be something fishy about their policies.

I had a guy from DC Thomson at my door last October/November, both local papers sales have declined massively. They were trying to get people to sign up for deliveries, including a free period, I told the boy that I wouldn't purchase any of their dailies, and I told him why, he said he had been told that all day.

I sell DC Thomson confectionery for their local giveaways, their giveaways have went from monthly to almost weekly. Their papers are struggling massively, and it's all their own fault. The Tele isn't bad, but The Courier is beyond a joke.

 

Is this a recent thing? I thought the Courier still had one of the best circulations in the country?
