Come watch a live debate on the contentious topic of "Brexit." This is probably the most salient question of the time, not just for the U.K., but for the fate of the E.U. as well.

Fred and Andy will team up against
Nancy
and Tanya to engage in a civil and thoughtful debate on this topic.

Here's the final debate resolution:
"This House supports the U.K. leaving the E.U."

The debate will be in an "Oxford-style" format
