Rule for public speaking
I love this story from Mandrake in the Daily Telegraph;
Michael Buerk was called upon to say a few words after a luncheon at the London Capital Club, in the City, last week. The 60-year-old BBC presenter stood up and told guests: "Hegel said that no man should speak for longer than he can make love." Buerk then sat down.
In the spirit of Michael Buerk, I suspect that my sermon next Sunday will be rather on the short side.
