    Category Elizabeth Jean Donald Warden
    Use of evidence: 3.4 2.2
    Delivery skill: 3 2.8
    Coherence of arguments: 3.1 3.2
    Responsiveness to opponent: 3 3.2
    Identification of key points: 2.7 3
    Comments: Why not just argue that the negative counter advocacy is not mutually exclusive with yours? Why can't we just do both? You could cite more evidence. Your speeches would seem less rooted in just opinion and assertion.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Donald Warden

    Reason for Decision:

    The opposition is never really forced to prove that their argument is competitive with the proposition. Since it's just a choice between whether I think a resolution or legislation would be better at addressing the dolphin hunt, I vote for the opposition. Banning it in Japan seems a much more direct way to solve the issue.


    Good debate, it was fun to watch.
