    I'm normally bad at these (especially the Monday quiz where I count it as a win if I get one right), got 11 today though. Good luck beating that <cool>

    8 from me. 4 guesses!

    I do enjoy these, in a painful humiliating sort of way. I do tend to swear at least twice.

    I love it when I discount an answer and the feral hogs and still guess wrong...

    I looking forward to the question where "Ron from Sparks" really is the answer.

    7/15 A return to some semblance of form.
    Reasonably happy with that, could have added one more point but also could have lost one so fairs, fair.
    Now just need to read some newspapers to get ready for the BBC quiz tomorrow. :emoticon-0107-sweat:emoticon-0102-bigsm

    1! A guess. It was the last one too. I deserved zero tbh.

    Just when you thought you could relax, had another day to recover from the mental anguish of the bbc 7 question quiz before Thursday's Guardian quiz lands. Liz Truss is all over the news, must have a new book out, or running for leader... her breaststroke will be on show a lot... so to keep us all amused, the Guardian has published a 16 question quiz on our former leader... yeah, let that sink in ...

    I'm embarrassed to say I scored 7 out of 16

    6/16 on the Liz Truss one, which is quite scary as I only knew 2 but was able to get into her head space to fluke another 4.

    I got 9, and knew about 8 of them.
    I take an interest in politics, so I've seen most of them mentioned over the past week or so.
