This is disastrous. So Opinion got the chop and we're left with a 'wet behind the ears' Personal forum frequented by members of the WI and Facebook luvvies discussing ice cream flavours, TV sitcoms and favourite dog biscuits. Then we have this place which is as lively as a pub on a Monday morning staffed by lepers. I get the impression that any serious 'opinion' posts posted on Personal will be toppled by fluffy girly posts kissing and thumbing one another up - which won't do. Is it possible to make this the new Opinion despite the restricted title 'Education News' which is as exciting as a bout of syphilis? Or, should we ask TES for a new Opinion forum - citing the problems that we now face?
