It’s been a difficult week for various reasons but I thought it was time to get back to picking out some news stories that caught my eye.
The INTERNATIONAL story I’ve become aware of this week is the unrest in France. I caught the news last night to see how the blockades were causing petrol shortages. It struck a chord as my sister-in-law is leaving for France tomorrow for a holiday and was concerned about whether they would be able to get fuel to reach their destination. It seems today that the situation is improving so hopefully she and her family will be able to travel ok.
The LOCAL news continues to be dominated by the European Union Referendum. At the moment I am totally confused about what will be best and neither side is presenting a good enough case to convince me to vote one way or the other. Part of me feels that we don’t want to be on the outside because then we have less influence in what happens in Europe, plus I think if we leave relations with France in particular will hit an all-time low.All links are courtesy of the BBC website.

Have a great weekend.
