SNOWDEN: HERO OR VILLAIN? (Or stating the bleeding obvious)

Next Lansdowne Debate: Thursday 25th July:













"SNOWDEN: HERO OR VILLAIN? (Or stating the bleeding obvious)"

An informal debate about his red hot topic. Whilst many automatically hail this guy as some kind of champion of freedom, maybe behind the headlines, if we dug a bit deeper, we'd see his actions as a massive threat to national security?!

Either that, or he's just stating the bleeding obvious. USA snoopping on people.. well I never?!

Please come and share your views!

Come as my guest!

Please come as my guests! Other Lansdowne regulars will also be in attendance, they are a diverse, fun and interesting crowd, and we're all looking forward to you joining us too, and bringing along your views! (or just watching and taking it all if you prefer!)

Please RSVP

Please RSVP if you'd like to join in on this debate! The dress code at the club is smart casual (no jeans, trainers, men have to wear a jacket...). Just come in and say you're with Marcus Warry, and they will direct you to the Sun Room for the debate! See you there!

    With his customary light touch and good humour, Marcus piloted us to our verdict about Mr Snowden. But it was the highly informed contributions from the floor that influenced our final decision. What an excellent way of getting to grips with a highly controversial issue and seeing many of its implications, sometimes from an entirely different point of view.

    Oh, and before the debate the vote was as follows:

    Hero: 10
    Villain: 3
    Undecided: 5

    and after:

    Hero: 16
    Villain: 4
    Undecided: The REAL debaters have spoken.. I'm sure it's just a matter of time now before the US government agrees with us, and lets the nice chap off!

    THANK YOU to everyone for a fantastic night!
