Oh boy, it’s been quite a week in the news, hasn’t it? Let me give you a quick rundown, but fair warning – my attempt at humor may fall as flat as Boris Johnson’s hair on a windy day.
First up, we have some rebel factions claiming they broke a government siege in Syria’s second biggest city. But Damascus denies it and says the rebels got pushed back. Who to believe? It’s like a game of he-said-she-said, but with more bombs.
Speaking of bombs, Boris Johnson faced a grilling by MPs this week to convince them he didn’t mislead Parliament. It was a marathon televised hearing, so naturally, everyone was glued to their screens like it was the season finale of Game of Thrones.
In other news, Sri Lanka secured a bailout for their struggling economy. It’s their worst economic crisis in over 70 years, but hey, at least they’re not alone. The whole world seems to be struggling financially right now. Maybe we can all form a support group and call it “Broke and Beautiful.”
And finally, the UK released their Spring Budget announcement. Jeremy Hunt claims we’ll avoid a recession this year, so we can all rest easy knowing that our bank accounts won’t be hit harder than a piñata at a kid’s birthday party.
That’s all for now, folks! Tune in next week for another installment of “What the Heck is Happening in the World?”
