This was a debate tournament in the British Parliamentary debate format, the Deree Invitational LVII was held (or started on) 4/12/2019. I tried to write down all the motions from all the rounds, but if any of them are missing or are wrong, please contact me and I will change them.
Here are the motions:
Round 1: This House Believes That women should pay less income tax than men
Round 2: This House Would give up
Round 3: This House Would never support or finance rebel groups on foreign soil as a tactic of war.
Round 4: TH, as the parent of a child prodigy, would push that child to maximize its potential.
Round 5: This House Believes That environmentalists and animal rights activists should launch violent campaigns against companies that pollute the environment or violate animals’ rights.
Novice Final Motion: This House Would introduce a maximum wage.
Open Semi Final Motion: This House Believes That the WTO should allow developing countries to impose tariffs on imports from developed countries.
Open Final Motion: This House Believes That mainstream political parties in Europe should impose a “cordon sanitaire” on radical populist parties (e.g. VOX, AFD, PPV).
