It's true I tell you. A-level students have become 50% cleverer since 1997. How can you argue otherwise? These are official government figures and well within the confines of evolutionary theory. Under New Labour school leavers have evolved in a new species, homo superior. You can see it just by looking at one of this year's A-level students...

By the end of New Labour's current term of office, school leavers will have dispensed with the need for physical form altogether and will have evolved into beings of pure energy.

Agree DS, but your conclusion is wrong. It should read...


By the end of New Labour's current term of office, school leavers will have dispensed with the need for physical form altogether and will have evolved into beings of pure lethargy.

22 yards = 1 chain
100 links = 1 chain
10 chains = 1 furlong
8 furlongs = 1 statute mile
6080 foot = 1 nautical mile

There are rods and perches in there somewhere, IIRC.
