Gorau Arf, Arf Dysg

What a momentous week. People in the know had been speculating for years about whether it would actually take place.

But after all the arguments and the turmoil it really did happen. The Spice Girls are getting back together.

Gordon Brown's arrival in Downing Street also generated a few column inches - as did his reference to his old school motto - "I will do my utmost."

That left a few hacks struggling to remember our old school mottos.

Mine (Stanwell Comprehensive School, Penarth) was Gorau Arf, Arf Dysg, which translates as knowledge the best weapon.

A noble idea - unless, of course, the other guy's weapon is a nuclear device.
