FIRST TUESDAY News Review on 3 October

The First Tuesday discussions on current affairs aim to provide participants with a way of developing and testing our understanding of a range of current affairs topics; improving our journalistic capabilities so that we can write opinion or comment style articles for the regional or national media or blogs, respond with a thoughtful angle on radio chat shows, TV talk shows or maybe just have an interesting angle to respond with when discussing the news at work.
