testing ah testing one two three four five six –
is this thing on? can you hear me up the back
there? no? okay how about now? that’s good
that’s better (okay damn the PA what i came
here to say is quite simple really (just listen to
me now you’ve heard what everybody else has
to say it’s a matter of common decency isn’t it
i’d appreciate a bit of silence (are you sure it’s
switched on? what? i see (it sounds like no one
here can hear me i say you up the back there
you there walking out the door would you all
just shut up for a moment what i’ve got to say
is extremely important i’ll only take a minute of
your time after which you’re free to say what
you like this is a free country after all & while
i disagree with what you say i’ll defend forever
your right to say it (right after i’ve said my piece
frankly i don’t think it’s very fair to characterise
me that way (on this occasion & on this day we
come together to remember how things were &
how i’d like them to remain (if you’d kindly put
that down sir i don’t think there’s any need for
that wouldn’t you agree? sorry i can’t hear you
i don’t think this thing’s even switched on is it?
would you speak up please? could we have a
bit of quiet? is this thing on? can you hear me?
