mnmlist: Our place in Europe, with Gisela Stuart MP & Rory Palmer



With an EU referendum on the table for after the next general election, Notts Fabians are delighted to welcome Gisela Stuart (@giselastuart), MP for Birmingham Edgbaston and Rory Palmer (@rory_palmer), one of Labour’s European Election candidates for the East Midlands in 2014.

This promises to be a fascinating debate over the future of the EU, and our place within in from the perspective of the Left. Gisela is probably Labour’s leading Eurosceptic – arguing the UK should leave the EU. Rory views, as a European Candidate, are somewhat different.

We’ll be ending with a ‘referendum on the referendum’ of our own – should Ed Miliband hold ask the public about our place in Europe, in the event of a Labour government in 2015? If so, how would you vote?

Join us. Entry is free to members, and you can join/re-new on the door. Entry to non-members is charged at £2.

7pm, Our place in Europe, UNISON, Vivian Avenue, Nottingham NG5 1AF.

NOTE: Immediately preceding the event, we will be holding our AGM (6pm, 22 Nov 2013) to elect the executive officers for next year. The AGM is open to all – and all members may vote. We will not be holding hustings, all key positions are up for grabs – and we’re after enthusiastic members to put themselves forward to lead Notts Fabians on to more great events & speakers in 2013/14.
