Tip of the Week: if in Doubt Report it!

My Tip of the Week is to take reports with a pinch of salt.

This week I've heard that red meat will bring you an early death; and that pensions are in crisis because we are all living longer than ever before (ask Old Pa Hurley, he's 105).

This week I've heard that primary school children are uneducated, can't sufficiently read etc. yet almost annually we hear how exam results at secondary schools are getting better than ever before (whilst we still hear how children think Hitler played in goals for Germany or Churchill led the troops at Waterloo).

I've also heard how wine can shorten and elongate your life.

If you took all government, NGO, pressure group and other reports at face value you'd be a gibbering wreck!
