History lesson

Radio Wales was reporting this morning that history lessons at school are considered boring. Clearly, one Assembly Member was not paying too much attention in her history lessons even though she tells me that she has a degree in the subject. In the Assembly yesterday, the North Wales Plaid Cymru AM, Janet Ryder, drew an historical analogy between the Assembly's Education Minister and Lord Nelson:

It has struck me for some time that there are many similarities between the Minister and Lord Nelson, who just before the Battle of Trafalgar held a telescope up to his blind eye only to declare, 'I see no ships'.

er...no! It was the Battle of Copenhagen and he actually said "I see no signals".
