In? Out? Shake it all about? Talk about the EU referendum at Charlton House on 19 February

You might be treating the approaching EU referendum with dread: foghorn-voiced old bores, nostalgic for Empire, hogging the news and distracting us from a wobbly economic situation that needs continued, urgent attention.

Or you may be salivating at the imminent poll: a festival of democracy that will debate our sovereignty and the urgent issue of how the United Kingdom relates not just to its closest neighbours, but the wider world.

Whichever you are, the Charlton Parkside Community Hub would love to see you at Charlton House to talk EU: In or out? with London MEP Syed Kamall.

“This event is strictly neutral and non-party political. Its aims are to air as many key issues as possible, discuss individual concerns and allow a more informed decision to be made. Syed will give a brief overview of the pros and cons of staying or leaving before opening it up to the floor for a Q&A session.”

Doors open at 6.45pm, the event runs from 7pm to 8.30pm. (And make sure you’re registered to vote…)

(If you really can’t get enough of local angles on the EU, Greenwich & Woolwich MP Matt Pennycook was a guest on today’s BBC2 Daily Politics, which discussed the referendum.)
