Michael Forsyth

Friday 17 June
Bruce Stevenson Marquee
6.00pm  /   £12, £10 (c)
Former Secretary of State for Scotland, Michael is an outspoken Conservative politician who does not equivocate on the great issues of the day. In 2014 he came to Melrose to debate with Jim Sillars and spoke passionately in favour of remaining in the union with England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Now he comes to argue for leaving another union, the European Union. His experience is wide, his views trenchant - he is a man who will not mince words.
