2017-03-09 19:00:00 Nothing worth knowing can be taught O&C debate
The next Oxford and Cambridge Societies Debate will take place on Thursday 9th March 2017 at the Victory on Avenue Franklin D Roosevelt. We shall maybe get away from Brexit by discussing Oscar Wilde's quote "Nothing worth knowing can be taught."
Details have been sent to members. Anyone interested in speaking should say so on the reply form by 25 Feb. Proposer and Opposer have 10 mins each to present their case, and Seconders up to five mins. There will be a short summing up by each side after the motion has been passed to the floor.
Time: 7pm for apéritifs, the debate will begin at 7:30pm sharp. Price: €35 each for OUSP or Camsoc members and guests. €40 per person for non-member alumni and their guests. Reply to Tony Banton by 5 March.
Wilde also may have said: "In America, the President reigns for four years, and Journalism governs for ever and ever." (Wikipedia). We'll see.
