      It’s always happened and probably always will. English public schools were notorious; look at Tom Brown’s Schoolday.

      One survey counted a single incident of being pushed past or being called a name as bullying, which, of course, made the rate enormously high and trivialised bullying. To me, bullying is more than one minor incident in a year.

    Seven Sharp must be short of news; the promo showed them asking people to open jars to show how stiff the lids were.

    I wonder if anyone told them to hold the lid under really hot water; this makes even the toughest seal easy to open. I pour a little water from the jug over it.
