February Is Black History Month #BlackHistoryMonth

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. There are also recognitions of Black History Month in Canada, United Kingdom and The Netherlands. You cannot tell the story of a nation without Black stories being heard. I am glad to learn more and to be a part of this.

Surprising Results In The UK General Election #GE2017

My goodness there are some unexpected results coming in from the UK General Elections, sounds like a huge surprise is unfolding. Labour is doing very well and will take seats from other parties. Jeremy Corbyn has reinvigorated the Labour party and this gamble by Prime Minister Theresa May has certainly backfired. Will she get the sack or will she resign, sounds like she has limited options politically. We shall see what happens on Friday when all this shakes out.

Theresa May began her political career in the middle of Margaret Thatcher’s premiership and has long been touted as the woman most likely to become Britain’s second female prime minister.

Later today Theresa May becomes the new Prime Minister of Great Britain. She follows in the steps of Sir Winston Churchill and Baroness Margaret Thatcher. From what I have read she will be a tough leader and will have to negotiate terms of the Brexit leave of the European Union. She is going to have her work cut out for her as she succeeds outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron who served for six years. .

My British/UK friends, what say you about your new Prime Minister?
