Speaker’s Corner, 1986

Many years ago, I used to visit Speaker’s Corner in London’s Hyde Park and basically watch a bunch of semi-loonies shouting. It was pretty addictive, particularly as there was always a bunch of guys who’d heckle all the speakers. Some of them were really funny. So, I was excited to come across this film about Speaker’s Corner from 1986, and recognise a couple of faces, most notably the podgy, posh chap – who, if I am not mistaken, once gave me a Nazi salute when I asked him directions to Marble Arch synagogue. Lovely.

    I love speaker’s corner! I used to go there when I was a teenager with my mates, so we could have a good chuckle… and the odd heckle!
