An example of a world schools government whip speech

I’ve seen many whip speakers struggle with the format of their speech. What does it mean to summarize the clashes?

This one starts at about 6:45

and then continues:

We start off the introduction. Then we get the three actors in the debate, also how he organizes his speech:




He summarizes Team England’s arguments and gives his team’s rebuttal (some new rebuttal and some summary like “we’ve already shown you that…”). Then we end with a summary. The speaker does a good job of summarizing the debate in his favor and explaining why his team won each argument or that some arguments were avoided by the other team.

Unfortunately, the 9th video (containing I presume the last few seconds of the government whip and the beginning 5 minutes or so of the opposition whip) seems to be missing.
