Croydon South Tory MP Chris Philp is to take part in a debate on Britain’s Brexit future.
Organised by the Coulsdon and Purley Debating Society, the event is being held on Wednesday, April 5 at the Coulsdon Day Centre.
Philp will be proposing: “This House is optimistic about our prospects after leaving the EU.” Ha! The debate had been due to be staged in January, but was postponed because of bad weather. Every passing day seems to make Philp’s loyal party “optimism” even more misguided.
Opposing the motion will be Labour councillor Andrew Pelling.
The debate will begin at 8pm at Grange Park, Coulsdon Road, Old Coulsdon, CR5 1EH.
