For once a feel good INTERNATIONAL piece of news. Tim Peake, the UK astronaut is coming home. Of course you might think as he’s British that this should be local news but given that he’s been up in space and orbiting the Earth for some time now I think it counts as International news. He’s been busy while on the International Space Station and it’s certainly sparked interest in the space station. Let’s hope he has a safe flight home.
The LOCAL news has been dominated by the murder of the Labour MP Jo Cox outside her constituency surgery. The suspect stabbed her and also shot her with a home-made gun. It’s been reported that he had mental health issues. I’m sure personal threats are something MPs are warned about, one of our local MPs was also attacked in his office some years ago, but I doubt if any explanation of why this happened will bring comfort to Jo Cox’s husband and family.
