BBC Quiz of the Week

I do apologise for the lateness of the quiz. I have been suffering day-confusion this week. On Wednesday I was sure it was Friday, Thursday and Friday I subconsciously KNEW were Wednesday and Thursday.

Now it is Saturday and I am into a weekend I was not expecting so soon.

It seems the boys have been skiving off from their studies as Cybe, Rob and the Eagly Eminence were all at the bottom of the class with 2/7.

No Crown Winner this week although Buff was able to record her second 6/7 in a row.

Now is your chance to test your knowledge of world events. Are you a monarch or a jester?

The BBC News Quiz of the Week.

Apologies for the error of using last week’s URL – I was racing to beat a planned power blackout – it was supposed to last for 2-3 hours – it lasted for 7!!! Such is life in the desert. Sorry for the Boo Boo

After guessing six of the answers and knowing only one, I will be wearing a crown next week – – -
