A speech of Churchillian stature.

It certainly is Harold. A great moment, one to go down in history.

I move to have post #3541 pinned permanently to the top of the forum threads, allowing all the good people out there to be inspired; for those preparing there own public speeches; for those dads preparing their father of the bride speeches, and finally as a reference point come the next general election to remind us all why we should not vote for a labour government headed by Comrade Jeremy Corbyn.

Gove has no more chance of being PM than Kinnock or Duncan-Smith ever did.

To many especially the younger generation he epitomises the worst of the Tory party

I think a slightly different approach for content would be advisable!

I struggled to watch it but only managed to get through the first half, feeling myself slipping into deep depression.

We should send her to negotiate with the EU. They would be able to take only so much before giving in to all our demands just to escape her.

She definitely would confuse the best brains out there in EU land, but the 38Bn divorce bill could have been a lot larger, in fact any figure that somehow drifted into the poor lady's mind during negotiations. Probably start with £10,000 and end up at 10 Trillion...

There is now more talk of a possible "Norway Plus" deal. This would mean free movement of people and being subject to the EFTA court:

Out of the frying pan...?
