Talk is cheap: a Freemania charity appeal

Meet David:

Today I want to make a speech about why I want to lead our country. I am afraid it is going to be a bit longer and I haven't got an autocue and I haven't got a script, I've just got a few notes so it might be a bit messy; but it will be me.

David is 40 years old. He’s a political party leader from Notting Hill and is trying to get ahead in life. He has charm, brains and oratorical skill, but he desperately needs your help to succeed.

You see, David, like many young people today, is affected by poverty. Through no fault of his own, he is unable to afford such simple necessities as an autocue or even a full pad of paper – things that most of us take for granted.

Please, give all you can to help David realise his dream of delivering a fully scripted speech. All donations, however small, can make a difference. Please send your cheques to Lord Ashcroft, Conservative Central Office, 30 Millbank, London SW1P 4DP.

Thank you.

Finally someone had a go at him! I was beginning to loose faith in the rational world... so someone makes a speech without a script? Doesn't mean he's fit to be Prime Minister (even though he is one of the few Conservative leaders I can stand)

What is worse - is that all this spontaneity is an absolute fraud - if you look at Guido's site you will see that he was given written extracts of the speech in advance and was certinly briefed on its contents. All it really shows is that Dave is a good actor who can remember his lines - I suppose that this is some improvement on Reagan.
