Say it often enough and it becomes true.

As people have said many times it's he who speaks last that people remember. It seems that is our governments policy to make sure that they just keep on talking even if it is the same unbelievably total rubbish they keep spouting.

After the news that we are dropping down the international league tables, read here, out pops a new report that says our schools are improving with 54% having better scores than last year. Read here.

So that's all right then. Although I see our report rather than simply sticking to tables actually talks percentages. That should solve the issue then. Most of our people don't actually understand percentages and thus will have to take the written conclusions that things are improving as gospel. As the other side won't be producing any more reports for a while it seems we will end this on an up note as far as most of the population is concerned.

I wonder if there is a cut off point in years where your certificates become as worthless as a politicians promise. Certificates up to 2003 get framed and stuck on the wall with pride and any after that get stuck on the wall with blu-tac.

You can paper the walls with certificates.

HA HA this made me laugh. Yes, qualifications are becoming increasingly meaningless.
