The Current Affairs Group is an interactive group where all opinions are respected and participation by group members is welcomed.
We meet monthly to discuss issues of International, National & Local interest. Topics covered include recent elections, immigration, various NHS issues, gender inequality, and of course Brexit, to name but a few. Our group is of a size to attract an interesting exchange of views and of a number to enable each member to have their say if they so wish. We meet in a friendly atmosphere, rather than an aggressive debating one and learn from each other, all contributions and opinions of members being valued.
This is the findings of our October deliberations.

In the absence of a clear path forward from Government, neither a Plan A nor Plan B, the conclusion of the meeting, "where is the UK heading from Brexit" was not clear cut. The risk of break-up of the Union was significant and the Representative Democracy, by which the UK is currently governed, and dominated by 2 Political Parties, is possibly facing an overhaul to represent the wishes of a politically fragmenting and cross-party electorate.
It is possible the UK is heading toward a divulgence from EU legislation tied to the needs of the Economy. In trading the self-interest demands of competitive economies may head the UK toward a lessoning of legal standards and a diminishing of citizen rights etc to achieve and maintain a UK competitive edge.
Finally the UK is probably heading to reform and restructuring over an indefinite period, to endeavour to maintain global position and achieve trading competitiveness, and a drive to achieve superiority in future high tech industries, digital, "green" technology, etc for future prosperity.
