QuoteOriginally posted by: rmaxMore Britons claim benefit in the EU than EU nationals claim in the UKJayzuz, look at all the Britons getting benefits in Ireland. There should be a law against that. Could we not give them a job fixing broken water mains, media access grilles and the like? Our tour guides at the Cliffs of Moher.

MI5 Chief Andrew Parker warns of threat of al-Qaeda in WestSpeaking more generally, Mr. Parker said, ?we face a very serious level of threat that is complex to combat and unlikely to abate significantly for some time.? He added that in recent months, authorities have prevented three U.K. terrorist plots that ?would certainly? have resulted in deaths.

QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperQuoteOriginally posted by: katastrofaUniversity of Shuffledthat seems a straightforward questionYes, it's pathetic (the students and the uni giving them diplomas). No formal education is necessary to answer that question without problems. Basic high school maths suffices.I would only object to using "per person" in the task description - I think it's indeed incorrect, but certainly it shouldn't prevent them from solving it.

Sometimes students just take time to step back and have a look a the big picture (actually, there are many reasons why that). It then suffice exam questions don't come up with a familiar setup to destabilize them.
