Current Affairs group 1
Group Leader: Lester Medcalf 01342 315589
The Current Affairs group 1 last met on the afternoon of Thursday February 20 and we aren't sure when we will meet next.
For that February meeting Mike Kilfiger had chosen to talk about the coronavirus. What actually was a virus, how serious was coronavirus, how did it compare with other viruses, had China been fully open and honest about it, would the July/August Olympic Games have to be abandoned or moved ? These were some of the items that we talked about as well as the economic effect it might be having on China and on the rest of the world.
If we had met in March our main subject for discussion would have been the future of the BBC - which might still be worth discussing when we are able to meet again.
