    Widows - some widows pull off a heist planned by one of the dead husbands. Sounds rubbish but is excellent. Great acting; the violence is infrequent, nasty but not gratuitous; some very nice plot twists. 9/10
  5. My school would go for a managed move before a permanent exclusion - excluding is expensive, makes your figures look bad, and most importantly it's an admission of failure. A managed move to a new school can work well with some - fresh start, consequence of poor behaviour, maybe form better friendships. Keep records is good advice. There should be a plan in place to help the lad manage his behaviour - not just on report. There would have been numerous meetings with you, weekly updates, etc. I believe you can permanently exclude for consistent low level disruption but it's a long process. From a teaching perspective, constant low level disruption is a pain to deal with but ultimately the student leaves your classroom and works on their own somewhere. Is this happening often?

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    If it was a debate about clause 4 then raising the fact that Hodge was a millionaire seems reasonable - was she not a "champagne socialist"? At the time of the debate (1995?), Corbyn was unlikely to be a millionaire, surely? He might be today but won't part of the reason for that be his frugal lifestyle?

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    I think it was the hypocrisy that she criticised people who benefited from tax avoidance schemes and then appeared to benefit from one herself, rather than the fact she was rich.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    I haven't been following the details of this thread but want to know whether your stance is that it is never right to enter into dialogue with terrorists? I'm not claiming that that was what happened, just curious as to where people stand on this issue. Secondly, when Corbyn condemns terrorist acts, do you believe he is lying?

    Sadly, Incredibles 2 isn't as good as the first film. The main villain is dull (and Syndrome was just so good) and to me it felt like a sequel, i.e. you know that certain characters will appear at some point and though their scenes are done well they still feel bolted on rather than intrinsic to the plot. Having said that, it's still a fun film and Jack-Jack v raccoon is awesome. 7/10 Ant Man and the Wasp - if you can switch off your understanding of science and ignore some horrible inconsistencies (I know it's a superhero film but they contradict their own rules from the first movie), then for the first 3/4 of the film it's a 7/10; it's good fun and the Wasp is great. The finale is really well paced, you understand why the villain behaves as he/she does, the action sequences are creative, and the end credit scene is well worth staying for. Overall 8/10.
