Informal Debate/Discussion
A smaller, more casual group discussion than the main monthly debates, with topics chosen democratically on the day by the members. Please feel free to post your suggestions on the website. There is an increased opportunity to have a greater input into the discussion and to get to know the other group members. Everyone is welcome!! We want to create an environment in which to have meaningful and fun discussions in which people feel safe to voice their opinions. In order to be able to do this there must be mutual respect within the group regardless of differing opinions. Please can members attending meet ups adhere to the following ground rules: Please do raise your hand when you wish to say something let whoever is speaking finish what they are saying and refrain from interrupting them Please do not heckle other members point at other members raise your voice when speaking to another member swear when speaking to other members hold private conversations whilst a member is speaking to the group Our meetings are for discussion and debate not for confrontation. Combative or threatening behaviour/language is not acceptable. Thank you for your cooperation

What we're about

Public Group

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!
