EU Referendum Debate

18 March 2016

The United Kingdom (UK) Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that a referendum on whether the UK should remain in, or leave, the European Union is to be held on Thursday 23 June 2016.  This referendum was an election promise made by the Conservative Party during the 2015 General Election campaign in the UK.  This presented students of business & economics in BVIS with a wonderful opportunity to debate the issue whilst finding out more about the European Union and the benefits and issues of membership for the UK.

EU Referendum Debate

Both in business and economics students learn about the impact of the external environment and government decisions on the individual, businesses, industries and economies.   The students had three weeks to prepare for the debate.  Initially they did not know which stance they would be taking in the debate and had to research for both sides.  In the end, the year 13 students argued for the UK to leave the EU whilst the year 12 students argued that the UK should remain in the EU.

EU Referendum Debate

The debate consisted of both sides putting forward their respective arguments, a cross examination of data, and a rebuttal before closing statements.  The students were well prepared and challenged each other throughout the debate.  Year 11, 12 and 13 students watched the debate and participated in voting for the team with the best arguments.  There was a clear winner with the year 13 students, arguing for the UK to leave the EU, obtaining the highest number of votes.
