The Wellington Debate

A most excellent debate last night, thank you to all involved: Sarah with her damning powerpoint presentation, Jim Stanton who’s incredibly accurate Sounds of Stanton stunned even the hardened Forest and Bird crowd along with her impressive costume skills, the pukeko for his emotional defence of the noble owl and Ross Norman co-leader of the Greens Party, who put up with me consistently calling him Ross Norman. Also to our increasingly drunk adjudicator TJ McDonald, and barman Dan in pukeko hat.

The overall winners (apart from the negating team) were Forest and Bird, who now have another $500 to help look after forests and birds, and the Humorous Arts Trust which raised enough to become a Forest and Bird Corporate Silver Sponsor. We even get a certificate! I shall have it framed and put up at Fringe Bar for all to see.

Great night team!
