Debate on older people

Had been given the task of summing up on this motion. This can be quite an onerous task as you have to bring all the strands of argument together into a coherent whole which isn't at all easy if the motion under debate is contentious.

Happily, this close to an election, the motions are never contentious so I decided to write a speech that I could deliver in a punchy way. I can't provide a link as I only had handwritten notes but was pleased with the feedback after the speech. It is always a good sign when people you don't know from Adam come and tell you they enjoyed your speech and an even better sign when colleagues ask if they can pinch a couple of your lines in the future.
