The annual Phoenix Debate between the OWBA and the Sixth Form was held on Friday, 16 November.
Former president of the Society, Harry Palmer, returned and teamed up with Reverend Sutcliffe to take on Molly Muir and William Wardle.
The house overwhelmingly voted against the motion
“It should be an offence to offend someone.”
However, when it came to the speeches themselves, Miss Muir and Mr Wardle, who argued that it should be an offence to offend, won in a landslide victory of 55 to 5 votes.
Many thanks for both sides on an exciting and thoughtful debate.
