SR Goes Posh

No, not this blog - I'm far too scared I lose everything if I attempt a new design - but the Scottish Review. It's had a rather posh facelift and most pleasant it is too.

There is also a new satirical column from The Midgie. I hope Kenneth Roy doesn't object to me cutting and pasting a small piece from today's edition.

The Midgie

As many as 17 children in Scotland are believed to have failed their Highers, according to statistics issued today by the Scottish Qualifications (For All) Authority. This represents a disturbing 0.036% of the pupils who sat the accursed paper. All 17 have been informed by standard text: CU U flopped U eejit lol The education secretary, Michael Russell, known to his pals as Mike, is expected to announce a public inquiry into what he called the 'unacceptably high' failure rate. The Midgie understands that the 17 are receiving counselling. Further sanctions are likely, including an in-depth interview by Jackie Bird. lol.

More from The Midgie can be read here

Asking can do no harm as a "Yes/No" keeps the conscience clear.

Rosie with 7 highers and 9 'o' levels all'c' or better. I would be imagined to be a genius now, if it wasn't so thick, if you see what I mean?
