NTU Pre-Worlds Day 1
Despite only surviving one round of debating today, the NTU Pre-Worlds was surprisingly draining. After arriving unbelievably (and ridiculously) early today, we spent the rest of the day bumming, and discussing why vegetarians don't deserve to live, for not fulfilling their roles in the food chain. This was, of course, the usual preamble to any NTU tournament - decent chaps but tournaments that don't start on time.
Anyway, we had this spectacular motion to kick off the First Round.
"This House Would put Humpty-Dumpty back together again."
Amazingly, we survived after defining the motion as one about integrating Turkey into Europe (and subsequently being named by the Chief Adjudicator as having been able to squirrel the motion in the only possible way). After the most horrific case-set in the history of mankind, we survived with a 2nd. I swear, this tournament is about the NTU Adjudicators wrecking havoc on their juniors.
