6:30-8:30 Tuesday 2nd June, Coates Road Auditorium
Historically, students are one of the voting groups least likely to turn out at European elections. The threat of BNP electoral gains has fuelled an increase in student-targeted campaigning by anti-facist groups such as Hope Not Hate, aided by social networking websites such as Facebook. However, anecdotal evidence would suggest the vast majority of students have little or no idea about the candidates wanting to represent them in Brussels
To help students decide who to vote for the Nottingham Debating Union are hosting a “Question Time” style debate with candidates from 7 of the parties contesting the East Midlands European Parliamentary constituency including:
The postman who refused to serve those that spoke poor English
The currently serving MEP who described the reduction in the rebate as “Treachery”
The candidate hoping to be the youngest ever MEP
Free to attend and with a drinks reception following the event, this is a chance to ask hard-hitting questions to the candidates before the June 4th polls.
