East Grinstead

Current Affairs group 1

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

The Current Affairs group 1 last met on the afternoon of Thursday 20 February 2020 and, coronavirus restrictions allowing, hope to restart in September or October 2021.

For that February 2020 meeting Mike Kilfiger had chosen to talk about the coronavirus - of course at that time a month before our first lockdown. 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 2020 our main subject for discussion would have been the future of the BBC - which might still be worthy of discussion when we meet again in 2021.
