Labour orators from Bevan to Miliband

Manchester University Press

This chapter discusses the oratorical style of Barbara Castle as one of Labour’s outside left fiery rhetoricians. She was one of Labour’s leading orators because of his forceful style of delivery, associations with the left of the party, and her broader impact upon the ideological divisions within the party. Although she argued she was ‘no feminist’, she undoubtedly demonstrated the significant impact of commanding women within the party, ultimately leaving an impressive legacy for the party and British politics, more broadly.

Keywords:   Castle, strikes, ideological change, feminism
