    It used to, back in the day.

    Though history O level stopped in 1914, having started in 1760.

      I remember mine, it was all about rotational farming and such luminaries as Jethro Tull and Uriah Heep. I believe we might have covered the crusades and I remember a lot of boring crap about the Middle Ages and I recall asking if we could, you know, have something a little bit more modern, some thing the 20th century I got told to shut up. Decided to drop history for the next year and take up sewing, much more useful...
      Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

        I remember a completely mad retired (British) Indian army officer, who only cared about military history. We got a great education in the military formations of the Peninsula War and the Torres Vedras fortification system, but no insight whatsoever as to what it was all about.

          Who gets to debate & vote? Is it those who live in the area, or the whole country?
          You debate and vote using your local MP and frameworks in place. Like anything you would like to change.

          Can't believe I'm even trying to argue this point, mob rule is bad in every way.

              Hiding underneath your poorly-constructed sentence is a ridiculous falsehood.

                    To OP

                    It's burning books innit?

                    If you try and "delete the past" you risk, over time, deleting the progress .
