Interested in debating current affairs with a friendly and interesting group of people? Whether you're a seasoned debater or simply interested in hearing other people's views (while of course expressing your own!), this is a group you can get involved in. Each meet-up, usually held on the third Friday of the month, offers a dynamic discussion on four issues spanning global politics to local events. Members suggest the topics in advance via this site, and the debate itself is usually an informal and lively gathering of people from a range of backgrounds and political persuasions. Sound interesting? Then sign up!
