BBC News – GCSEs 2013: Top grades fall for second year.

So it’s become tougher to pass your GCSE’s this year for the first time in 25 years!

In my humble opinion the examiners need a sharp and severe kick in the pants.

Let’s look at what our kids, the future generation are being fed with every day.

Financial crisis, worsening job prospects, massive national debt, misselling by banks, rising cost of living just to name but a few. So how do we go about encouraging children to work hard, to succeed for the future?

Answer, reward them with fewer GCSE passes!

Unbelievable. Common sense, not if you are a GCSE examining body!

no wonder the younger generation don't bother saving!

Despite announcing a profit after tax up 15% to £464m yesterday, I was shocked to receive my pension statement this morning showing the following.

According to my statement my fund value has increased by 17% over the past 6 months. Not bad at all to be honest. So why has my projected pension  actually decreased in value?

Something not right here surely?

Common sense, don’t save, just spend spend spend!
