In the first round Cubitt/South were against Loveday/Rhodes and the topic was: “The Internet”.

We were opposing the motion that: “the internet is a bad thing“. The format was one Loveday speech, one Cubitt speech twice and then a five minutes floor debate where Josh Elliott contributed excellently.

We narrowly lost the debate but Loveday went on to win the whole thing beating East by some way in the final so I think that if we had come up against less tough opposition we would have definitely got through.
