Internet Has Done More Harm
Than Good .
1st Speaker Opposition

Thank you Madam speaker .

Assalamualaikum and a very good morning to Madam speaker of the House, the respected panel of adjudicators, the ever-precise timekeeper, my worthy opponents, ladies and gentlemen members of the Parliament .
As the Opposition Leader, it would be my duty to refute the motion for today Internet Has Done More
Harm than Good . We believe that Internet Has Done More Good than Harm . The government team, ladies and gentlemen may throw the sand of confusion and untruth in your face to hide the actual fact. However, I’m confident after we are finished ,everyone will be convinced and had to agree with us on the contrary.

On the whole, it seems that the definition offered by the government is compatible with ours. However, I would still like to speak a little on the matter lest there might be misunderstanding over what we are debating on.

According to the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English 2001,
Internet means, a computer system that allows millions of computer users around the world to exchange information. Harm means inflict physical, mental or moral injury .Whereas, good means having the right qualities. And lastly, Students mean someone, who is studying in a school, college or university. So the topic means internet has inflicted more physical, mental or moral injury than providing good qualities to students, which we the opposition team believe is not true.

Before I proceed any further, let me rebut on the point put forward by the Prime Minister.
(rebuttal)
Therefore we, the opposition team once again refute the motion for today and we believe that Internet
Has Done More Good Than Harm.
As the Opposition Leader, allow me to provide you with the outline of my team’s case. I will elaborate on how internet can increase students’ interest in learning. My Deputy Opposition Leader will elaborate further on how internet can develop communication skill and how it can breed
