May 22 Blog

Last week I went to a public meeting held by the Labour Party in Kirkcaldy. It was about third world debt, The speakers were Gordon Brown and Hilary Benn. It was an excellent night. Both speakers were brilliant. Brown especially. Quite unbelievably I was enthused by both speakers as they talked with apparent passion about the issue. Brown talked for about ten minutes without seemingly looking at a note while talking fluently and rolling off statistics. Benn talked for about 45 minutes. They then answered questions from the floor. It felt like 27 years ago. I'm just posting this to give some balance to my previous comments on the political process.
