Argument Clinic

As we have been learning how to express our opinion and argue for and against different points of view, why not look at this Monty Python sketch. Monty Python is a comedy team which had its own series in the 1970s and went on to make films like 'The Life of Brian'. In this sketch a man goes to an 'Argument Clinic' to pay to have an argument... but he isn't happy as he only is only contradicted. Remember, when you disagree with someone, it's not enough to just say, 'Yes, it is', 'No, it isn't' etc. Enjoy the sketch.
