Brexiter challenges remainers to publicly debate him on the hottest issue of the day

A passionate north Norfolk Brexit supporter has challenged anyone in favour of the UK staying in the European Union to a public debate.

Steven de la Salle, of Sheringham, said he was tired of “ridiculously negative letters from EU supporters” appearing in the press.

Mr de la Salle said: “The comment last week about a vote to leave being a vote for unemployment is disgraceful. In fact, we now have record employment in the UK.”

The Ukip member said he wanted to publicly debate anyone in favour of the UK staying in the EU: “no matter if Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem or Green”, and suggested holding the event in a community centre in Sheringham or Cromer.

Mr de la Salle said members of the public would be invited to attend and ask questions.
