Barack Obama in Westminster Hall

What a privilege it was listening to Barack Obama live on TV from Westminster hall this afternoon. He spoke for 40 minutes with no notes, and held everyone's attention throughout...OK...maybe not Ken Clarke who appeared to be sleeping....but everyone else.

What a great hall for a great orator as well......900 years of history, and the American president did not disappoint.

It is very rarely that we are impressed by a political speech nowadays, but this was definitely one to remember.
