Current Affairs group 1

Group Leader: Lester Medcalf 01342 315589

The Current Affairs group 1 met recently for our first meeting of 2020 on the afternoon of Thursday January 16 in the home of one of our members.

Members had been asked to bring their own subjects for the meeting and we started with a discussion on the likely influence of Mr Trump on us in the UK after we have left the EU – in particular the trade rules that the USA might impose on us. “Chlorinated chicken” being an example.

Our second subject was the future of Harry and Meghan and their wish to distance themselves from royal duties. We inevitably talked more generally about the Royal Family and whether it would have the significance it currently has after the Queen dies.

And our final – but very brief - subject was a look at the pluses and minuses of our increasingly cashless society.

We will meet again on the afternoon of Thursday February 20 in the home of one our members. Members will be told of the main subject for discussion about a week before the meeting.

Lester Medcalf.
