So many important news stories hit the headlines last week it’s probably a good idea to look back over some of the biggest
South Carolina was the scene of an horrific attack by a young white supremacist on the congregation of a black church in Charleston. The twenty one year old Dylann Roof shot and killed nine people before being arrested and charged with murder. The incident raised yet more questions about racism within American society and highlighted issues the nation still faces with gun control with a member of the NRA, National Rifle Association, executive actually blaming the church for the deaths because the congregation weren’t allowed to carry guns in church in comments he hastily deleted from the internet.
The joint European currency, the Euro, faced an even more uncertain future last week as the Greek government and EU completely failed to reach a deal over its nations debt. With the EU insisting on heavy handed austerity measures that would worsen the plight of the Greek population, and the Greeks asking for more reasonable behavior from the European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund and other international lenders. Greece has a deadline of June 30th make a repayment of one point six billion Euros, failure to make payment will result in a default on the debt and exit from the Euro.
The 2016 Presidential race got yet another candidate last week as Donald Trump, a man with independent hair and no sense of shame, announced he’d be running for the White House.

His concept of a wall between the two countries paid for by the Mexican government perhaps an indication of just how farcical this vanity run at political office will be for the rest of us to watch.
