Question Time at King’s: EU

Monday 12 May at 7pm – Keynes Hall, King’s College Cambridge

Press: TCS | Tab | King’s web

UKIP, Labour, the Greens, Liberal Democrats and Tories battled it out to decide who will lead Eastern England on 22 May. Things got heated quickly – the UKIP candidate compared the Greens’ representative to “fascist Germany” after the latter heckled his opening speech, and insults flew back and forth for the rest of the debate.

The hustings followed a ‘Question Time’ format, with audience questions determining the focus of the debate. The discussion was centred around topics of immigration and asylum seekers, overfishing, the EU and employment, clean energy and, of course, the prospect of Britain leaving the EU. 

Speakers:

Andrew Duff MEP – lead candidate for the Liberal Democrats

Tom Hunt – 5th candidate for the Conservatives

Mark Hughes – 7th candidate for UKIP

Sandy Martin – 3rd candidate for labour

Rupert Read – lead candidate for the Greens
