More than 15m adults in Britain have poor numeracy - the equivalent of a G or below at GCSE maths

A G? It goes down to G now? I thought the lowest was F or U or something.

G then there's a U and an N - two sorts of failing! I think a G actually counts as a pass.

I got a "U" in maths for only being able to write my name on the exam paper before I froze. Heh. I remember sitting there for an hour or however long it was, just looking at the blank sheets. I remember the smell of them. Weird.

I like how she says that Camelot fobbed her off with some story that -6 is higher - not lower - than -8 "but I'm not having it".

Compulsory sterilisation. It's the only way.

For the Camelot directors, obv!
