Whilst UKIP have their own valid points, I cannot stand Nigel Farage. He even said he'd abandon politics as soon as he got the UK out of the European Union. I don't want a leader who promises to do half a job then leave us high and dry, I've never trusted him since.

Sorry to say but school work has gotten the better of me and I have been unable to complete my side of the debate. I hope me and my opponent can arrange another time to have the debate again

Well SebUK, if you can prove that people should vote UKIP rather than Tory then that's the same as saying they shouldn't vote Tory, so I think it's a perfectly reasonable thing to argue. I wouldn't vote differently.

@SebUK I am not sure as to why you think that you have to argue for UKIP. If you accept the debate you can just argue that people from the UK shouldn't vote tory. Unless I have misunderstood something

Would it be okay if I simply argued against the resolution rather than for UKIP?

I agree, but I might go devil's advocate for this. Hm...

I'd accept, but the Pro side already has a contender!
