Debaters Runners-Up in Regional Competition
A team of SES debaters were runners-up in the East of England regional final of the ‘Debating Matters’ competition earlier this week. The team of Ed Emerson, Hannah Yogasundram, Emma Hunter and James Rigby narrowly missed out on a place in the national finals. The motions were tough - physician-assisted suicide, censorship of artistic expression and liberalising the UK's drugs policy, but they performed really well under considerable pressure. Hannah Yogasundram was highly commended in the individual speaker awards.
