    Use of evidence: 1 3
    Delivery skill: 1.5 1.5
    Coherence of arguments: 2 2
    Responsiveness to opponent: 1.5 3
    Identification of key points: 3 3
    Comments: Debater really needs to work to respond to opponents points.

    Also, there is no formal citations and very little argument development throughout the speech.
    This style of delivery is not really appropriate for a public debate and the speech lying in bed is just weird.

    However, you did do a good job carrying though your main pints.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Lindsey Hancock

    Reason for Decision:

    The proposition made little to no attempt to respond to the opposition's arguments and although I found them fairly unpersuasive they were conceded.
