Great speeches

Share This

Political journalist and author, David Torrance, is on the hunt…. for the greatest speeches by Scots, ever.

The reporter on STV’s Politics Now – who also freelances for, among others, The Times – has most recently published an unauthorised biography of the First Minister, Alex Salmond.

And now he is turning his attention to either speeches delivered in Scotland or by Scots throughout the world.

Among the contenders are speeches by the late Jimmy Reid, Margaret Thatcher, J. M. Barrie and James Maxton. Torrance is particularly keen to locate more examples of oratory by non-politicians.

Any suggestions should be emailed to davidtorrance@hotmail.com
