It’s a bad week to be a Conservative politician. Someone allegedly called the grass-roots anti-Europe movement a bunch of ‘swivel-eyed loons’.
Isn’t that wonderful? Not that the Conservative Party are imploding – once more – on Europe – that will depend entirely on your political leanings –but what a great insult. It sounds a lot like Shakespeare’s ‘cream-faced loon’ – and if you’re feeling Shakespearean today – why not try to generate your own archaic sounding insults?
On the other hot topic that appears to be dividing politicians, have you seen the very funny speech by a New Zealand MP on gay marriage? It’s a beautiful example of how to turn your opponent’s words against them.
What examples of interesting or funny speech have you come across in the public arena recently?
