In this debate, the Resolution is this: "This House Believes that the United Kingdom Ought to Dissolve the Monarchy"

Then, last second he says he wasn't actually arguing to dissolve the monarchy. He has the voter convinced of that as well. This WHOLE debate has been about whether or not to dissolve the Crown, and he shifted the goalposts last second to sound like he just wanted to limit their power and cut pay win.

If you read the comments, him and whiteflame are talking about it
"I agree that your case wasn't for abolition, so I get where you're coming from."

And now this guy is trying to lose me conduct for arguing that he moved the goalposts.

Definitional debate. He defined dissolve as having those three tenants. You never disputed the definition until way late. He has a point.
