Something sensible?

There are two ways of thinking about the coalition government.

1)Get annoyed at everything stupid that they do
2)Accept that all governments do silly things so its not really worth worrying about

If you follow point 2 then occasionally some optimism can light up your head. This has happened to the FM whilst reading about a speech given by David Willets who was talking about teenagers who were put at a disadvantage at applying to medical school as they did not have the option of taking individual sciences at GCSE.

Its an absolute disgrace that some students dont even have the opportunity to take the individual sciences at GCSE, certainly the FM would have struggled at A-level if she had not had the opportunity denied to pupils all over the country


  1. Fair enough striving for equality, but I have plenty of friends who did double science and got into medical school. Perhaps it depends on where you apply to.

  2. To be honest, it probably doesn't make that much of a difference, its just thats its a shame you dont have that choice when you decide what GCSE's to take at age 13

  3. I agree with point no. 2. I'd rather think that the coalition government does silly things and I shouldn't worry at all. Worrying wouldn't do anything good to me. Why should I allow the silly things the government is doing to affect my mood, emotions and feelings? But of course, I'm still concerned with the affairs of the state and I will do what I can to help.
