Hitchens & Tegnell Deep Fry Covid Lockdown Loonies in Virtual Cambridge Union Debate
The intellectual steamrolling of the century
— UPDATE —
Cambridge should be ashamed. They shut down the livestream chat after everyone started cheering for Hitchens (viewers also pointed out that the pro-lockdown Imperial College lady was reading straight from her computer, and doing a poor job of it, too). It wasn’t really a debate. But the pro-sanity side won without a doubt.
Thank you to everyone for watching our first ever digital debate "TH Backs Global Governments' Lockdowns"!
The proposition narrowly won with 46% in support against 40% against, though with a decline from 89% support in the pre-vote. pic.twitter.com/Wi5dqJVzkf
