Last week Neil was invited to visit Colyton Grammar School to argue the case for staying in the EU.
It was a formal debate and Neil had the unenviable task of being up against Year 11 student Eden – a 16 year old who would give any politician a run for their money.
The debate was run as part of a series of events organised by the school’s Politics Ambassadors in order to promote discussion of the referendum amongst students.
Neil said: “I was glad to take part and put the case forward for staying in the EU. I think it is particularly important for young people, because they are the future. It is a decision that will affect them more than anyone else”.
Colyton Grammar School will be conducting their own EU in-out vote on the day of the referendum.
