 \topic{Coffee Break}
 \opinion{Keep the coffee break at 11.00am}{Move the coffee break to
10:30am}

 \begin{Opinions}
  \item[Mabel Canary] We should continue to have coffee at 11:00am.
  \item[Polly Parrot] We should move the coffee break to an earlier
time.
 \end{Opinions}

 \begin{Argumentation}
  \pro We've always had coffee at 11:00am. There's no
need to change it.
  \contra 11:00am is too long a wait for the caffeine
addicts.
  \Pro Coffee at 10:30am would interfere with our clandestine
experiments scheduled at that time.
  \item Prof Important Person said it would be better to have tea
instead of coffee.
  \result The coffee break will continue to be at 11:00am.
 \end{Argumentation}
