I thought about this a lot last night.

There is no way I can even semi-politely express what I feel.

How sad, how very, very sad Sad

thank you for your consideration Serge. Cheesy

<The Department of Education said on Friday sex education was determined by  individual schools.>

Education is devolved so England has no say in Scottish Education
