Channel 4 to host the real Brexit Debate

Category: News Article, News Release

7PM, SUNDAY 9TH DECEMBER, Channel 4

Channel 4 will host The Real Brexit Debate on Sunday 9th December at 7pm. The live, hour long programme will see four high profile politicians reflecting the main divisions in the House of Commons on this issue – Theresa May’s Deal, a softer Brexit, a harder Brexit and People’s Vote/Remain,  just days before MP’s historic vote on 11th December.

The Real Brexit Debate will be chaired by Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy. It will tackle the key issues people across the country care about and consider the genuine options left open for the United Kingdom, as opposed to just debating the viewpoints of the Prime Minister and the leader of the opposition.

Channel 4 director of programmes Ian Katz said: “On the eve of one of the biggest decisions in Britain’s modern history it’s a great shame that the leaders of our main parties have refused to take part in a televised debate that reflects all positions on the Brexit issue so Channel 4 is staging the debate the British public deserves.” 

The debate will take place in front of a carefully selected live audience of 100 people with diverse perspectives on Brexit.

The format of the debate will see each panellist give a overview of their position followed by the debate, and a summary from each to close. 

The programme will be produced by ITN Productions.
