 "What in the world is going on; and how much does it matter to us?" A chance to discuss the political events likely to affect the world we all live in.

Group members decide which topics to discuss relating to domestic and international politics. All sessions are introduced/led by group members, often in pairs. To date we have discussed China, Russia, Brexit, populism and nationalism, corruption, wokeism/cancel culture to name a few.

Future topics to be discussed include, Do we need more experts in politics? Is libertarianism becoming the dominant political philosophy in Britain? Private armies from privateers to Wagner.
