East Grinstead

Current Affairs group

Group Leader: Lester Medcalf. Email to curaff1@eastgrinsteadu3a.co.uk

The Current Affairs group met on the afternoon of Thursday April 21 in the home of one of its members. Not surprisingly the major subject for discussion was the Russian invasion of Ukraine, although we found it difficult to answer the questions we brought to the meeting. When will it end ? How will it end ? What exactly is Putin aiming to get out of it all ? Is he also looking at other countries that used to be under Russia's control ? What can NATO do ? Will Putin drop nuclear bombs ? What do ordinary Russians really think about what is happening ?

Thoughts on all these issues - and many others - took us up to our half-time tea break. Following the break we found ourselves unexpectedly coming much closer to home as we talked about restaurants and eating places in East Grinstead and district.

We will meet again on Thursday May 19 at the home of one of our members, perhaps hoping that Putin is not our major subject for discussion.
