On 8 May Dr Bernard Cadogan discussed what makes a good political speech in New Zealand. Bernard presented us with a ‘perfect speech’, discussing the place of irony, wit and a range of other tools in political speeches today. It was an informative and thought-provoking presentation, and the following Q & A session proved stimulating. We have now published this event as a two-part video series on our YouTube channel and our Nation Voices website:
