Interest in the referendum is intensifying. Last week I debated the pros and cons of our EU membership with regional UKIP MEP Jim Carver, attracting around 400 people – an impressive turnout. It was our intention that as many undecided people as possible would be in attendance, but in the end the audience was overwhelmingly decided, largely in the “out” camp. They were certainly eager to put across their opinions. Irrespective, however, of pre-formed views, it really was incredible to see so many at a political debate.
