This debate was filmed at the Debating Matters 2011 UK competition. In this semi-final, panellists battle it out on whether Wikileaks is good for democracy or a severe hindrance to it. In the wake of the leaking of more than two and a half thousand US Embassy Cables at the end of 2010, Wikileaks became the focal point of government and public debate. But, are founder Julian Assange and his team making history by increasing accountability and improving the democratic process or are they simply whistle blowers severely damaging diplomacy and democracy whilst giving investigative journalism a bad name?
