When #EmpireDebate began audience was 35-28 for the motion. When it ended we (Opposition) had won 44-26. Anti - colonialism triumphant!
#EmpireDebate begins at @UKSupremeCourt. Predictably, after turning away droves of keen folks, many empty seats. Latecomers most welcome
Congratulations to 16-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi, teenage scientist ibnlive.in.com/news/16yearold…
