Predictable amusement/outrage that you get marks at GCSE just by writing an expletive. But where's the outrage for the fact it's now a question on a GCSE English paper to describe the room you're sitting in? What happened to discussing poetry, or literature, or drama? I'll get my coat, and exit, pursued by a bear.

How many marks would the candidate in the "Quote of the Day" have got for using an interrobang?

"Campaigners see the hoarding of bulbs in a dim light." Surely, that's exactly the hoarders' point, isn't it?
Plants do not "seek cooler conditions". What actually happens is that seeds deposited on soil at altitudes where, previously, they would have been unable to thrive, are now able to do so. Seeds deposited at lower altitudes, where they would previously have been predicted to thrive, now fail to survive. Or does the musical "High Society" now have starring roles for triffids?

Danie and Henri (Friday letters), that's not what the BBC says - click the "about BBC iPlayer" link and read what you find - specifically the bit that says "You do not need a television licence to watch programmes on the current version of BBC iPlayer". You need a licence if you have equipment that can decode broadcast TV signals. If you watch on a PC with a TV card, you need a licence. If you watch on a PC without (and which cannot decode said signals) you do not need a licence.

The 46664 concert: "Families travelled from across the UK to watch the gig, including Andrea Hawker from Sussex and Debbie McElhatton from Surrey, both of whom brought their daughters." "From across the UK"? The south east of the UK, obviously.
