There’s a lot of things happening of interest around the world, from the Brexit split between the United Kingdom and the European Union to Donald Trump’s young presidency in the United States, from the civil war in Syria and the associated surrounding Middle East mess, to growing tensions around North Korea and China.

      Lets hope she pulls through. France will need her to pick up the pieces after Macron and Philippe fail to protect the mother land from more imminent terrorist attacks.

      Vive la France!

    Trouble could be brewing between a publicly owned commercial TV station (Channel 4) and the Government.

    Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow was reported as joining in a chant of ‘F**k the Tories’ at Glastonbury, after it he reportedly told the crowd he was ‘supposed to be neutral’. Jon Snow claims he cannot remember the incident, but he did not deny saying it.

    The other night on the news a Conservative commentator pulled him up on air about his overt bias and told him that ‘not everyone hates the tories like you do’, this reportedly left Jon Snow speechless with no comeback.

    Yesterday a Conservative MP was sent a text from Channel 4 requesting he go on the news for an interview, he replied declining saying that he could not be sure about interview impartiality.

    A Conservative MP has called for all Government MPs to boycott Channel 4 News over it.

        Thank the Lord Trumpy has “saved the second amendment” & in future doctors will be able to turn up to work heavily armed, having easily obtained firearms, to defend themselves from unstable people who have easily obtained firearms.

          I remember my first introduction to North American TV news in Canada – nearly 50 years ago. A student in Texas pulled a gun on his supervisor but the supervisor pulled out his own gun and shot him dead. And in Detroit a man ran towards police shouting “Shoot me, shoot me!” so they killed him.

          This was obviously a different planet.
