Bury St Edmunds hosts lively Question Time debate
Bury St Edmunds hosted a lively Question Time debate last night in the BBC programme’s first visit to the town.
On the panel were Matt Hancock, West Suffolk MP and Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport; Diane Abbott, Shadow Home Secretary; Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Green Party; barrister Jennifer Robinson and comedian Simon Evans.
The show was broadcast from The Athenaeum, on Angel Hill, with about 100 people in the audience who were selected to ensure political balance.
Among the issues discussed were whether Home Secretary Amber Rudd should resign, Labour’s antisemitism row, US President Donald Trump’s visit to the UK and whether staying in a customs union would still deliver Brexit.
