JUST days before the Herald's live EU debate in Stratford, Lord Digby Jones, who wants out of Europe, has been involved in a second heated exchange with panellists debating the referendum on television.

Lord Digby Jones will be taking part in the Herald EU debate at Stratford's ArtsHouse this Thursday evening but in the run-up to the event he's clashed with several panelists over the whole EU issue.

The former Director General of the Confederation of British Industry took part in a BBC Midlands Today Referendum debate last Sunday night where he verbally clashed repeatedly with Labour MP Tristram Hunt who supports the remain campaign. At times it became increasingly difficult to host the lively discussion because of Lord Digby Jones' repeated interruptions.

And on Tuesday there was a repeat performance when Lord Jones clashed with Labour MP Rachel Reeves who he had a live bust up over the EU on the BBC's Daily Politics programme. At one point she accused him of "loving to interrupt women."

With the EU referendum just over a week away, emotions are high and the stakes appear even higher.

Lord Digby will be among the panelists at tomorrow night's Herald EU debate which takes place in front of a live audience of 400 people and will also appear on the Herald website.
