For the benefit of those who weren’t there, here is the unedited speech I wrote and read out for the Berwick Trades Council/Peoples Assembly event last weekend:
As Tony just said before he nicked off for the football, the Peoples Assembly aims to work with those from all walks of life. But the Berwick branch should probably not invite the Russians round as you’ve been at war with them for nearly 200 years.
What’s Berwick’s view on Scottish independence? Does it mean that you will have to take your passport with you to the shop around the corner?
I’m suitably qualified to do this speech on Youth Unemployment as:
- I’m 22
- I’ve been unemployed for over a year
- This is only the 2nd time I’ve ever done any public speaking so it’s basically like most replies I get from prospective employers, I don’t have enough experience
I’ve been unemployed…
