Laurence Stracey Debate 2016

Posted by: David Smellie | Date posted : 03/11/2016

This year Armando Iannucci and Nabilah Tasmin proposed the motion "The people are never wrong; politicians are rarely right”. This motion was opposed by Lord Jonathan Hill and Nadia Mensah. The motion was defeated narrowly by 103 votes to 96.

Many thanks go to all four speakers and Richard Parry, Senior Partner of Farrer & Co, who judged this year's contest.

IntoUniversity, for whom Nabilah and Nadia were such impressive ambassadors, would be grateful for all expressions of interest, support, or corporate partnership, to assist them in the valuable work they do. Rachel Carr, their Chief Executive, was personally in attendance on Tuesday evening and doubtless would love to hear from you.
