Yes I suppose. I could be positive and see it as a challenge. I recently read the Oxford Union rough guide to debating. The author writes
"In addition it has chapters on hundreds of other things in case you get a motion about something unusual or some poncey arts student thinks up a motion like “This House Believes that Modernity is dead” and you have no idea what they are talking about (or why). "
I could handle poncey arts students motions but unfortunately the inevitable sensible current affairs topics will probably completely lose me.

Pierre, are you planning on going to Ox and if so, which college/subject?
