Speakers’ Corner, Sunday 9th September

In News for Speakers' Corner on September 10, 2018 at 11:47 am

“You are a rock most of the time. Sometimes it’s okay to be the river.”
Unknown.

1. What a beautiful Goldilocks day! Even better, Speakers’ Corner flourished, even without the services of Maria and Ray. We hope they’re back next week.

What was good about Speakers’ Corner today? We had four speakers going, each with a crowd. Steve, Helmut, Mark the Grinner and Mr B all had crowds of varying sizes and if you squinted your eyes it almost appeared to be a carnival atmosphere.

Mirko contributed too, in his patented way.

Not only that, at one point Mark the Grinner graciously allowed young fellow Tommy to take the stand, and Tommy created a crowd of his own. He expressed his views on the ethics of adults having sexual relations with 13-year-olds. He received plenty of disagreement.

Of course, the topics among the speakers differed considerably. Passers-by were spoiled for choice.

It was a fabulous day and we didn’t finish until after five.

 

 

2. One topic discussed was the difference between introverts and extroverts. It was asked: can introverts be speakers?

Does this help?

 

3. Another topic Tommy was forced to discuss was abortion. This postcard was on the postsecret site.

4. Mr B had a brief disagreement with a grasshopper about infinity, yet again. It seems the subject itself has no ending. He claims he has a firm understanding of the subject, while two grasshoppers claim he has no i-bloody-dea.
