With just 85 days until the European elections, the Liberal Democrats are making our voices heard when it comes to Europe. Liberal Democrats are unambiguously the party of IN.

We're IN for the sake of 3m jobs linked to our trade in the single market.

We're IN to keep our streets safer and to make it easier to catch criminals who cross our borders.

We're IN to protect our environment.

And we're IN because we stand tall in the world, when we stand tall in our own back yard.

That's why, last week, during his weekly LBC radio show Call Clegg, Nick publicly challenged UKIP leader Nigel Farage to a debate on Britain's membership in the EU. He wants a public, open debate on the choice facing the British people: whether we should be in or out of Europe.

Lib Dems all over the country (and beyond!) got involved on Twitter with the 'NickvNigel' hashtag. 'Clegg' and 'Europe' even started trending in the UK.

With Nigel agreeing to debate Nick, the question is clear: Are you IN or are you OUT? Are you Team Nick or Team Nigel?

Here's what you've been saying so far…
