I was invited to speak to the Peterhouse Politics Society on the 28th April. I gave this far less attention than it deserved, assuming it would be the usual long journey to address three students. I realised it was a much grander affair when I was taken in to dinner. The grace was in Latin, and I sat beside the Dean and spoke about Byzantium.
Fortunately, Mrs Gabb made me put a suit on!
The speech went fairly well. I most liked the long question and comment session afterwards. However, while I was permitted to record the whole meeting, I have been asked only to publish my own speech – Chatham House Rules and all that.
Here it is: Peterhouse Speech
