RIP Tony Benn

" >

Tony Benn died this week (March 14 2014). He was a passionate and extremely talented speaker in the House of Commons. This short extract from a 1990’s speech is typical of his style and highlights his clarity of message, emotional appeal and consummate delivery.

He balances pathos with facts and data (logos). His credibility (ethos) comes from how he looks and sounds, his reputation and his conviction.

Observe how he glances down to check his notes but then looks up and delivers to the whole audience.

What else do you notice?

A cube with 43 quintillion combinations, only one of which is correct. From 1974 to a walk to school in 2021. Samu can solve it no time but never stops looking for new ways 👏. Must be a lesson in there.
