Lively Discussion Group The group was started in 2010 and comprises up to 12 members who discuss a wide variety of topics including politics, health, climate change, geology, ethics, science, art, music etc. Examples of subjects discussed over the years include:
Excessive Debt and Its Implications for Society Are Elected Police Commissioners a Good Idea? Should Scotland Leave the Union? The Housing Crisis Can a Free Press be Entirely Faultless? Should we Reintroduce Grammar Schools? Are We Prepared for Electric and Driverless Transport? King Charles III, How Will He Differ From His Mother? Climate Change – We’re On The Edge
There is only one topic which has been repeated – ‘Who Would Your Ideal Dinner Guest(s) Be, And Why?’ This was first discussed in 2013 and then again in 2020 - two very different discussions as our guest choices had changed markedly in 7 years.
