The first tournament for 2004 is over. John Bull 1 is the new debating champion.

View the Tournament here:

The final:

Well done and thankyou to all competitors.

Also thankyou to the judges for giving up their time and doing such a good job with this tournament.

The next tournament won't be starting for a month or so. In the interim I will run a few Skirmish and Grudge Match debates. Not starting until Wednesday next week or so. So I shall make another thread calling for skirmishes then.

Excellent work, everyone, and congratulations John Bull 1. I admire people with those kind of debating skills and I am very glad I don't have to argue with any of you!

I think I agree with the judge who reduced the debate down to the closing statements. Ya buttonhooked me! That was great.

Great debate. Best one yet. I think I may have made it to the finals on a fluke anyway, as some of my opponents in other rounds had more important issues to press.

But since it's over I can now concentrate my efforts on the more permanent endeavor, for which I may require a little help from you, JB1. I'll be in touch.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to read the debate, I'm sure that now you are at least confused on the issue, where before you may not have even known there was one. The first step to Deny Ignorance. Now you know. And knowing's half the battle!

And even though it is true that I really had my ass handed to me, I learned a lot. Now I know that there is a southerner on the panel and that it would be best in the future not to make fun of them!!!

Until we meet again!
