Each clan had two representatives, with Douglas and Gordon presenting propositions, and Forbes and Stuart presenting oppositions. Each speaker had 4 minutes to deliver their points, being marked on their reasoning & evidence, expression & delivery and quality of response by our three judges, Dr Long, Mr Ward and Mr Davies.
Key points were discussed on both sides regarding sovereignty, economy and immigration, with all participants presenting confidently and well-prepared.
As often the case in these debates, it was tough for our judges to choose a winner, however on this occasion it was decided that Clan Gordon where the overall victors. Alexander Anderson (U5S) was named best speaker.
