Two political science students from the King's Debating Society participated in the British Parliamentary Championship Debating tournament held by Western this year on November 28 - 30, 2014. Violette Khammad, a first year student, and Craig Roseberry, a second year student, represented King's at the debate. Students debated in teams of two against other schools on impromptu topics, using formal rules and procedures. This year, the 5 topics were:

  • Be it resolved, we should allow individuals in prison to serve their sentences in the armed forced
  • Be it resolved, we should not allow sexual assault victims to give up their right to testify in criminal proceedings as part of a civil settlement
  • Be it resolved, the EU should automatically re-admit regions that secede from members states
  • Be it resolved, we should require pornography producing companies to be run by a collective of their female employees
  • Be it resolved, we should ban the purchase of urban, residential real estate by foreign investors
