Video: Human rights debate at NYU London

14 May 2014 by

On 28 April 2014 I debated Dr Lee Rotherham of the Taxpayers’ Alliance at NYU London. The motion was: This House believes the human rights agenda is promoting unfairness in the UK. I was against the motion (as you may have guessed).

The debate is now up on YouTube – enjoy!

    Adam, I enjoyed the debate – well, the half I have had time to watch.

    Can you run trough catgate here – as your opponent suggested it was not the way you put it?

    1. Adam Wagner says:

      Thanks Theo – my posts on the case sum up the position. The cat was mentioned in the judgment (actually, as a joke) but was obviously not the reason the man avoided deportation, as stated by Theresa May.

      1. Theo Hopkins says:

        And here in Oxford UKIP are leafleting me and are still talking on human rights about “the cat”.
