Hello, I have a debate on in about 24 hours this is my shitty speech. If anyone had any points to add over 50 words. Please add it in then I'll change it. O and if something does not make sense just tell me :nodding:

Good evening Ladies and gentlemen. Tonight we the negative team will prove to you that trading should NOT be banned on public holidays.

Firstly let me address some of the comments made by the affirmative team. Of course family time is important but families were still important and relevant when workers had to work far longer hours and for less money than they do today.

Work is the glue that enables families to stick together. Without the income generated by paid work families would be far worse off and under more stress.

Also it is important to know that some public holidays are exempted from opening. Christmas day Good Friday and Anzac day because of their religious and memorial status. We the negative team accept this and do not seek to change these days because of their National significance.

The rest of the public holidays like the Queens birthday or New Years Day are good days to have the shops open. Not just to enable people to earn extra money but to provide cheap venues for family excursions. Think of the number of people that go to shopping malls to escape the heat in summer or just to window shop as an outing.

Work is important. It keeps our communities healthy and strong. The world is a far different place from the world of long ago. We need to be flexible to accommodate this changing world.

There was a time when women were not allowed in the workforce. For example women with young children may be able to earn money by working on public holidays while their husbands look after the children.

Should we deny them this opportunity? NO. Is it bad for the children to be looked after by their father or extended family? NO. The affirmative team would have us return to the bad old days.

The rest of Australia trades on public holidays. Queensland should not be behind the times or disadvantaged. We are not a provincial backwater as the opposition would have us.

I put it to you that shops opening on Public Holidays present opportunities for paid work to people who would not otherwise have this opportunity to earn.

Another example is students. We all like our own spending money and it has the added bonus of taking the pressure off mum and dad to provide the extras that kids today take for granted.

Think of the number of University degrees that would not have been able to be achieved if paid part- time and week-end or public holiday work was not available. Imagine the strain on the family budget.

It may not have been possible for families to support their children through University without this work. Imagine the disappointment. Work is opportunity.

I mentioned women in the workforce earlier. The convenience of being able to shop on public holidays and weekends assists women (and men also) to better manage the needs of the family. When would these workers be able to do the grocery shopping without this convenience?

To sum up ladies and gentlemen. We the negative team put it to you that trading on Public holidays should not be banned. For all of the reasons I have mentioned but mostly because WORK IS OPPORTUNITY and to ban trading on public holidays is opportunity LOST.

Please read it yourself, and then ask yourself if that **** really could win a debate?

Now the language and all that seems decent, but the arguments...

The negative team does agree with the Affermatice team in the matter of that some public holidays days should be exempt from trading.public holidays should be exempted from opening are Christmas day Good Friday and Anzac day because of their religious and memorial status. We the negative team accept this and do not seek to change these days because of their National significance.
