Daniel Hannan… to the respectable Mr. Gordon Brown
At the moment, the most watched video on YouTube in UK is a speech by Daniel Hannan, a conservative MP for SE England. It is a great piece of oratory and well worth the 4 minutes of viewing time, if nothing else. Needless to say, Mr. Hannan’s gutsy and calm delivery is very impressive, and more importantly, it is the openness of dialog in the UK parliament that grabs your attention.
Since I am not tuned in to UK politics, I have no visibility to the claims he makes. But we do need a lot more of this at home from our conservative friends — to match Mr. Obama’s skills — and engage in a meaningful and rational dialog.
