Last weekend I met up with long time pal and fellow hummus lover Georgina Phipps, blogger at A Cynic’s 2013 Challenge.
At the start of 2013, Miss Phipps decided to set herself a challenge: an attempt to do one new thing, every week, for one whole year.
This is a woman with no fear.
Until that is, she faced her latest challenge…
IN A PARK.
HYDE PARK in fact – one of the largest parks in central London – and home to the famous oratory ground SPEAKERS CORNER.
Georgina decided her challenge would be to hop along to Speakers’ Corner and deliver a speech.
A speech that would rival the likes of Martin Luther King in its deliverance.
A speech that would strike deep into the heart of whoever tuned in to listen to it.
A speech that would invite critical praise, rather than critical criticism.
A speech about…
…the economic, political and social discrimination of single people.
And so it was that one windy Saturday morning, we ventured into London town – me armed with my camera, Miss Phipps armed with her notebook – and took Hyde Park by storm.
The result: a riveting speech, a surprising number of spectators, and a round of applause.
Oh and the above video clip.
