Week #20 19th April, 2015

Hello everyone. So this week I thought I would keep in theme with what’s going on in the national news and talk about British politics (hold on you non-Brits, don’t stop reading, this has ramifications for your own country as every country in the western world has similar problems in their economy so stay tuned, or skip to the end, up to you).
