Fed up with all the political and royal Caption Competitions. They are their own joke and don't need us to send them up any more.

More than £800m a year is being wasted on students who drop out of apprenticeships and A-level courses because
their schools and colleges are more interested in getting 'bums on seats' than on guiding them to the right
subjects. Critics warn that data released today shows that a generation of young people have been set up for
failure, spending wasted months out of the jobs market or more appropriate education.
