Teams from the two cities are to meet in the Hastings District Council Chamber to debate ‘that this house prefers 1840 to 2040”.
The Hastings team will be led by Mayor Lawrence Yule and will take the position that 1840 is preferable to 2040. Mr Yule says “Debating is great fun and this event will have greater meaning as we try to get the better of our near neighbours. The world of politics is ever changing and there are huge differences between what happened in 1840 and how politics will run in 2040. I will have to brush up on my history before the debate.”
