At 2 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month, our small, friendly group of men and women meet in the Community Centre to discuss topics in the news.

December 2017 meeting

The 7 of us spent nearly half the time on topical questions and carried over 2 questions to next month.

Inevitably, we looked at Brexit "progress" and the Government Budget for 2018. We discussed the most important events in 2017, before tackling the old chestnut of those that kill animals and birds for sport.

We spent some time looking at the provision of mental health services and our collective answer may be read in the Centre's website.

As a trial run, the Group have published a summary of the Group's views on the subjects discussed, DiscussionNovember2017.pdf and DiscussionDecember2017.pdf

Our next meeting - Tuesday 9 January 2018 at 2 p.m.

On 9 January 2018, we will be discussing 3 questions, allowing time for topical questions:

  • Is the new law forcing public companies to publish "pay" rates necessary? Will it make any difference, and if not, what legislation should be put in place? (Executive Pay)

  • Should ex-soldiers be pursued, questioned or prosecuted, in relation to killings in Northern Ireland 50 years ago?

  • The development of robotics is moving at an ever-increasing pace. How do we manage in a world where robots will increasingly replace humans in the workplace?
