Just an idea... 

Anyone interested in a live debate using the Chatbox feature. Sunday's are normally a good day, sometime in the afternoon ( After our dinners have gone down) 

A topic should be agreed on Saturday and debated live on Sunday. 
Anyone interested. 

The Chatbox feature is quick & easy to use.

Would we, after a nice sunday roast and a little claret, be excused/allowed to thump the table and use words like "codswallop" and "poppycock"?

Being on a final warning, I might opt out of this one! Wink

Then perhaps you should learn the art of debate. Idea Then you wouldn't need to use the words you mentioned. Tasker what would be the subject you would bring into debate.

Good debate involves bouncing ideas off other people. Debate is not a forum for asserting absolute truths, but rather a means of making and evaluating arguments that allows debaters to better understand their own and others’ positions. Perhaps most members are happy to reply then sit and wait for a reply, rather than use the live feature to debate. I personally think it would be entertaining so what if it gets a bit heated. I'm sure we know the difference between rudeness and discussion.

I would choose to debate, the effectiveness of the MH rifle.

Quite right Dave, I think I learned the art of debating from watching the muppets at work in the House of Commons!

The subject I would like to debate is, "Were the record number of VCs awarded for RD, an attempt to spin public opinion away from the disaster at iSandlwana?"

Tasker has chosen a good topic to being. I for one think that all the VCs awarded to those who took part in the defence of the Mission Station at Rorke's Drift was for gallantry during the action and not to over shadow the disaster at Isandlwana. Although not possible I think all surviving defenders should have received the VC.

2 VCs were given in 1880 and the other one was given after the British had one the Battle of Ulundi, no need to distrat from Isandlwana then, they had a huge victory to celbrate.

Agree seems a good topic to start with. Just a suggestion when this goes ahead. Members can post what they want as long as its to do with the topic in hand. What must not be said at any stage is " it's all ready on the forum" or " this has been discussed before" if it's going to be a live debate then it should be just that. All we need to agree on, is the start time and end time. For those like me who are not quick on the key board it doesn't matter all the information will be relevant. Some of us are bound to make spelling mistakes again it does not matter ( as long as it can be understood) I'm looking forward to Sunday. I'm sure between us we can make this very enjoyable but heated at times. Very Happy

P.S when the finsh time is reached. That's the end of the debate.

Graves. Mine will be a glass of whiskey....

LH, a bit early for a malt for me!
I wouldn't object to the odd "it's been discussed..." pointer to other threads and info on the forum that have been discussed before, as long as they were helpful and not used as a put down.
There is such a huge amount on this forum that it could fill a small library and no one can have read it all. Hope no one calls in sick tomorrow and I can make it!


DB14. VCs are not dished out immediately after an action. There is a long process of recommendation, discussion, witness statements and deliberation to go through.
However, fantastic stories of outstanding gallantry at RD (and iSandlwana - M and C, true or untrue) hit the newspapers at the same time as the story of the defeat of the camp. THIS was the important spin. Or was it? Lookng 4wd to the debate. If this particular topic is not chosen, let's debate it in the forum. There is a relevant thread somewhere I think which can be continued, will search it out.

Hi Tasker

What i ment was there was only 8 VCs after Isandlwana, there was no need for others to distract as we had one a huge battle.

The only people who's VCs are debatible are Chard and Bromhead, the others performed acts of bravery
that merit them a VC
