Thanks for reminding us of that, Oboogie. Say what you like about Kinnock (and Murdoch's organs bloody well did), by fuck he was passionate on a par with Bevan when it came to hating the Tories.
Kinnock in full flight was a magnificent orator. Today, unfairly, he is probably best remembered for the "Well orrwight!!" nonsense at Sheffield, which is alleged to have cost us the '92 election (it didn't). I remember him as a breath of fresh air, someone young and in touch. I was 19 when he became Labour leader and the NME
interviewed him and called him the first Rock and Roll party leader (he was a teenage teddy-boy and a member of the Gene Vincent fan club, facts like that seemed really important at the time).
Looking down his list, it all applies today, even more so now than then. It'd be lovely to think that there was someone in the shadow cabinet today capable of making such a speech but I can't see it somehow.
