    I can understand why some people would be anxious about performance ect.. but i'd have thought taking control would lessen that.

    Either way, have fun, be forward and seize your prize.

    I find that having someone else taking the control relieves a lot of the pressure, but nevertheless ill be enjoying myself a great deal.

    I'm perfectly okay with how society has become more liberal about discussing such things, just didn't expect it so frankly in the bar. I do try avoid such talk however, makes me frightfully embarrassed.

    Excuse me for butting in, I hope you don't mind me interrupting but I was wondering if I could run an EU idea past you guys?

    I was thinking it would be cool to hold a big debate about the referendum in the public forums by getting two teams together (one supporting leave, one supporting remain) and seeing if we could hold a more formal style debate, maybe even with a debate conductor... is this something you might be interested in/ think could work?

    Sounds great. Unfortunately I'd end up berating both sides though so couldn't side with one.

    Seems a good idea to me, one sees a lot of wild claims flying around these forums.

    Definitely an interesting idea, especially with a conductor so it's not all messy and all over the place.

    I'd be interested in it

    If it worked better then the EU referendum we had in October then could be good. Just have to be wary that it doesn't transform into a shouting match which is most likely would.

    If we had a debate conductor and a set of group rules then we could make it that you get eliminated from the debate if you get too excited/shouty?

    Maybe a time out instead of eliminated? But yeah something like that could work well

    For obvious reasons, yes.

    The Big Debate is a more formalised style of debating rather than your traditional thread in D&CA so there's less chance of it turning into a shouting match. Think Oxford Union-esque stuff. You can see a previous example here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3724617

    If we can find a way for it to work I will be more than happy to partake, I'm already ruining my degree over the EU anyway.

    Shocking that they are a 95%+ majority. (Not in a bad way, not in a good way, I just didn't realise Wales was that much whiter than the UK average.)

    Even more shocking that 1 in 18 Welsh people are called Jones.
    One of my primary school teachers was Welsh, and his surname was Jones also.
