School EU Debate

Congratulations to the Economics 'A level' students at the Royal Grammar School in Newcastle-up-on-Tyne who last week voted the withdraw from the European Union.

Following a heated but well informed and at times humorous debate the students debated the key issues of the UK's continued membership and concluded by a majority of 60 per cent to leave the EU.

The motion ''This house proposes that the UK leave the EU '' was proposed as readers may by now have guessed by the editor of this blog who following the debate commented to the press: '' Excellent debate excellent points and excellent result''.

The motion was opposed by Dr Christian Schweiger Lecturer in Political Science at Durham University.
