Welcome to the Oxford Union
For those coming up to Oxford for the first time, I would like to take this opportunity to say welcome. To all those returning after the long vacation, welcome back.
There is one thing that we feel should never change. The Union exists to provoke debate. These debates are often about contentious issues. Controversy for controversy's sake should never be a goal, and, if events have taught us anything, it is that the Union needs to address issues in as sensitive a manner as possible. But it should be willing to address them nonetheless. To refuse to do so would be to risk losing what makes the Union special - the very last thing that we would want to do.
