Does anyone know, whether there is an opportunity to send questions in advance, or whether questions will be posed randomly on the night?

And while I am here, can anyone enlighten me as to who or what ‘Isle of Wight 48%’ are/is? The Green Party in another guise I assume?

This event would seek to characterise the general election as being solely about Brexit. That is a flawed notion – the election is much, much more than another single-issue referendum.
It wont be a popular view but if I were a candidate I would eschew this debate and any other that was predicated on a single issue.

Brexit if it happens will break the UK and destroy the economy for decades. All other polices will be tainted as a result of the massive downturn. So yes this election is about Brexit.

We know the Remain argument and we know the position of the Tories, Greens and Labour. With respect, what the others think is an irrelevance.
Seems odd to promote an event that will shed more heat that light. Perhaps that’s the point.
