Bristol Conservative Future attends BBC Three’s Free Speech
Bristol held host to BBC Three’s Free Speech on the evening on Wednesday 16th May. Presented by the sharp Jake Humphrey in Motion, one of Bristol’s biggest night clubs. Free Speech is produced by the company which is famous for BBC’s Question Time and the show aims encourages young people to discuss current issues. Bristol Conservative Future, including UWE CF and Bristol University Conservative Association, attended the event to show support for the party and as an opportunity to network before the show with locally minded young Conservatives. The evening saw black un-employment, drug legalisation, sexism in rap music and private education debated in depth by the audience. The panel included previous Conservative Future Deputy Chairman Alexandra Swann, who was representing UKIP, as well as Jamal Edwards, Cherry Healey and comedian Kojo. Overall, the evening provided some very hot opportunities for debate and certainly provided some food for thought for all present! The show is available to view on BBC iPlayer and Free Speech will soon be visiting Brighton, Birmingham and Edinburgh; a wonderful opportunity for young Conservatives to meet new people and discuss key issues!
