  • Picking up Maths and Economics a levels after year 12? (AS year)?

    I'm taking four A levels at the moment - Law, Government and Politics, Welsh and History. Over this year though I've gained a real interest in economics through politics really and I am thinking of a degree in economics along with something else. I'm thinking of taking Maths and Economics next year and dropping two other A levels. So , my questions are:

    - Is it sensible to drop two AS levels which I might have done quite well in? (results in August)

    - If so, which two should i drop?

    - Is it worth delaying university for a year to complete A levels in maths and economics?

    ( Apparently you need Maths for a degree in economics, I got an A in Maths GCSE)

  • What do English people think of Wales?

    In general.

    I'm curious because an English boy has just moved to my college and he thought that Wales was just a bunch of mountains where rural communities receive loads of funding from England and where people speak a foreign language.

    What do English people, in general, think of when they think of Wales?

  • Are the media too harsh on politicians?

    You always hear the media rambling on about how politicians are power-grabbing, bankers are greedy and how the world's going to end but is this true?

    My local MP came into our college a week ago and said he worked a 80 hour week.

    MPs are in London Monday till Thursday doing business in Parliament.

    Then Friday till Sunday they hold surgeries in their local constituencies and do other things such as talks, visits etc...

    Let's not forget, these people are actually running the country. So, do you think the media portrays politicians harshly or not?

  • Views on scottish independance?

    The SNP are in a minority Government now in Scotland. Earlier in this term they tried to pass a bill for a Scottish referendum but no other party or MSP would support them. In the Scottish elections in May (I think), if the SNP achieve an overall majority in the Parliament they will probably push for a referendum on Scottish independance. (Although it wouldn't be independance at all within the European Union). What are your views on Scottish independance , especially if you're Scottish?

  • Why has President Obama betrayed Britain?

    Britain has been supporting American troops in the Middle East for 10 years now. Now it seems that Obama wants to work more closely with the EU and the French than with us British. More than 7 times as many British troops have died in Iraq and Afghanistan than French troops.

    France hardly lifts a finger to help the USA and fight for democracy while Britain does all it can. France has a larger economy than ours but we still contribute more man-power to the Middle Eastern conflicts.

    Is this the end of the special relationship between the UK and the US?

    'France and the French people are our best allies' Barack Obama (2011)

    I'd like to know what some Americans think of this. The UK has so much more in common with the USA than France does.

  • What's your opinion on the situation in Ivory Coast?

    The leader there lost the recent election but is refusing to give up power. The police and civil service are still loyal to him so ,basically, there's a illegitimate undemocratic Government there.

    Do you think the International Community should enter into the situation?

    Do you agree with a NATO-lead invasion?

    What's your opinion?

  • Is this a flaw in evolution? Has there ever been a beneficial mutation with information added to the organism?

    For evolution to have occurred, there must have been billions of mutations. This is common knowledge.

    These mutations obviously must have been beneficial, for that creature to survive and eventually out breed the organisms still stuck with the 'old' gene before the mutation.

    But, these mutations must add information as well, because for 'simple' organisms to evolve into humans, giraffes, elephants.. so on, there must have been heaps of genetic material added.

    Does this actually happen? Can anyone give me an example of a beneficial mutation where information is added? It seems absurd to me to assume that something has happened billions of times if it has never been observed once.

  • Ethnicity of English football players?

    Before I begin, THIS IS NOT A RACIST QUESTION. Please don't label it so...

    I am merely curious as to why, in the English football team there is a fair mix of white-skinned and black-skinned people but in their rugby team, there is at the most 2 or 3 black-skinned players.

    The same is true with the French rugby and football teams and , but to a far lesser extent, the Welsh football and rugby teams.

    Is it coincidence or is there a reason?

  • Why can't the Republic of Ireland print their own money?

    The R.O.I has got itself into trouble and so it looks like it will either be bailed out by the EU, or the UK individually. I know that if a country prints too much money it causes inflation and maybe hyper-inflation but what's the difference between the republic of Ireland printing its own money and the EU giving it money? Won't they both cause inflation? Why does the R.O.I have to borrow money, can't it print its own??
