Inter-house debating in Big School
16 October 2020
Monday night in Big School witnessed another excellent match with Howson’s proposing and Oakeley opposing the motion, ‘This House would vote with enthusiasm for the election of Joe Biden as US President’.
The Proposition stressed Biden’s achievements as senator and Vice-President whereas the Opposition suggested that the US system is so broken that it is impossible to vote with enthusiasm for anybody. Both teams displayed excellent topic knowledge and more gifted oratorical skills than either side in the actual US election. Howson’s (Hector and Joe) saw off a very strong challenge from Oakeley (Shahd and Emily) and now progress to the semi-finals.
