BRITAIN SHOULD LEAVE THE EU!
WHAT A SERIOUSLY FRUITY DEBATE
Well, could there be a bigger topic in our time? I personally think you'd struggle to find one. And we've got some fantastic speakers to slog this one out, with representation from ALL the major parties.
Marcus Warry will chair it, in his usual informal/question time style. We will take a vote before and after to see if there's been any change in people's oppinons. Please come armed with an open mind and lots of questions for our amazing panel!
SPEAKERS CONFIRMED SO FAR:
FOR: Douglass Carswell MP (Tory)

PRICES AND DRINKS
Ticket Prices are £10 here, as I need to cover the meetup fee.
You get a glass of wine on arrival. And then there's a cash bar all night for further drinking, debating, arguing, networking after the main event.
THE LANSDOWNE CLUB & THE BALLROOM
The Lansdowne Club has been a mixed Private members club since 1935, and has a fantastically rich and interesting History. The building was a home to Lord Bute in the !8th Century, and was regular watering hole for the likes of Charles Dickens, Lord Byron & Thomas More.
This is the FIRST time that the debating society has been given the wondrous Ballroom for a debate, and so we're also making a small piece of history in some ways, and I really hope to see you there as my guest.
