Victoria Wins Argument


A team from Victoria’s Debating Society beat Auckland University in the final of the Next Generation series of debates, last Wednesday.

The team composed of Richard D’Ath and Asher Emanuel debated the moot “that there should be higher taxes on the rich,” speaking for the affirmative.

The debates were sponsored by the New Zealand Initivate, a policy think tank and merger of the Business Round Table and New Zealand Institute, dedicated to improving the quality of policy discussion in New Zealand.

Otago and Canterbury Universities also competed in the series.

The series of debates were held around the country at a number of secondary schools, canvassing topics including the adoption of children by same-sex couples and the banning of tobacco products.
