Private, Public Debates
No, I'm not talking about Canadian health care:
Such is the fashion for public debate in London at the moment, that two societies were debating the same subject, broadly speaking, on the same night last week. Intelligence2 debated whether sexual intercourse really did begin in 1963.What a lovely idea. instead of the media spun pap which passes for debate in our House of Commons or, God help us in the leader's debate, you have a bunch of people get together, have a few cocktails and, in the spirit of a bygone age, orate, rebut and - if I was running it - win a bottle of champagne for a decent performance.
Very adult, rather fun and beats the hell out of whatever is on TV.
