The Democracy Roadshow
The campaign to win Britain's freedom begins in earnest in September with a series of debates across the eastern region. Billed as the "Democracy Roadshow", this is your chance to go along to hear arguments for and against Britain's membership of the EU.
The events are free to attend and are open to the general public, but you must book your place in advance here:
The Democracy Roadshow is a new format , it has two speakers for the OUT campaign and two speakers for the IN campaign. Each event will have a neutral Chairman (such as a local radio host or paper editor). There is an opportunity for audience participation on questioning the debaters.
On the way in the audience will be asked to fill in a form to indicate how they are currently thinking on staying in, coming out or don't know and at the end of the evening a ballot booth will be set up and the audience can participate in indicating after the event how they may vote in the Referendum.
The first debate is in Peterborough on 2nd September and the OUT speakers are Patrick O'Flynn MEP and Suzanne Evans, Deputy Chairman UKIP and for the In campaign is Julian Huppert ex Lib Dem MP for Cambridge and Laura Sandys ex Conservative MP South Thanet and the event is being chaired by Mark Edwards, Editor of the Peterborough Telegraph.
