Bill Gates triumphs in Voltaire Society Balloon Debate
The Voltaire Society celebrated the festive season with an entertaining and suitably rumbustious Balloon Debate. In the basket of a rapidly descending balloon, six occupants – Maya Angelou, Tom Cruise, Bill Gates, Thomas Jefferson, Luke Skywalker and Ivanka Trump – fought hard to keep their place and have their rivals thrown out. The force clearly wasn’t with Mr Skywalker as he was the first to be ejected. After a hilariously bitter debate, the audience decided to save Bill Gates. Hopefully, in turn he can save the planet.
