Quotes

Department spokeswoman Troy Martens said on Wednesday the problem was worrying. "Many of them resign from the profession so that they can access their pensions. As the department, we are doing something to reverse this."
...complex: what if it had never happened? RJW Evans, Regius professor of history emeritus at Oxford University, provided his distinguished answer: "This calamitous conflict, more than any other series of events, has shaped the world ever since; without it, we can doubt that communism would have taken hold in Russia, fascism in Italy, and Nazism in Germany, or that global empires would have disintegrated so rapidly and so chaotically."

"The ministerial task team has submitted the report and we are studying it."
