    Which nations are best represented by our talented debate regulars? Please give reasons, with reference to their debating style.

    To kick us off I would throw a curve and suggest that against all intuition, FMF perfectly represents the USA.

    I base this on the following observations. He only argues on his terms. He dismisses those who do not share his worldview. He goes from charm to bully in less time than it takes to realize he's not really that charming. He can be loyal to his friends, but he does not take criticism or opposition well. He prefers a scorched earth winner take all approach.

    Debate!

    Yes, there is a good deal of Irishness about his postings.
