    Times tables "to be tested by age 11".

    Fair enough, but why up to 12 times? We're "decimal" now supposedly. We got rid of 12 pennies to a shilling in 1971 so what is the need now to know the 12 times table? BBC News

    Eight out of Ten Cats does Countdown I like. 75 times table would be handy for that. And that Rachel Riley likes a few inches.
