Nah, I feel the same way.
Its hard to respect politicians at the bst of times,  but the younger they are the harder it is.

Gordon Brown and Tony Blair might have been idiots in various ways ... but at least they had some kind of Statesman-like bearing about them.
Well, maybe a little ..

Are they any more prat-like than the Liberal and Tory leaders? Blair's reign has issued in a new generation of leaders - the professional politician.

yes they are, but I know what you mean it seems like there's a machine churning out 'modern' politicians, all clones (or is it clowns L0L )

All this talk on TV of Ed Milliband this ... and David Milliband that ...

I'm not impressed at all,   though I did very much like the other brother ....  The Glenn Milliband ....   wrote that song, In The Groove?   

Not really heard much from him since,  oh, 1940 ish?   L0L

Fester, I expect you know all the time. But, just in case, Glenn Millar disappeared in small aircraft crossing the channel towards France in 1944. Despite many rumours and theorys no definitave report was ever issued to what actually happened.

  Before my Thai Wife (Tippawan)  can have a Settlement Visa, with independant Leave to Remain, in the UK, (and therefore qualify for her citizenship), she has to undertake an ESOL course, in English Language, at aCollege of her choosing, in the UK,and then sit the Life in the UK, test, and gain a 70% pass.

I would invite any of you guys, to take a moment, to have a look at the web site ''Life in the UK test'', and discover the questions, she is expected to answer,- to gain that pass.  You may well be amazed  - The relevance of the questions, is beyond my comprehension..

This version scores your attempt.

Just wondering if we should move this to the games and online quizzes board
