Michael Foot is renowned as one of the greatest British political orators of the twentieth century. An aptitude for public speaking was an invaluable asset for Foot’s generation of politicians, who were expected to adapt to a diverse range of political settings ranging from Parliament, party conferences, and broadcast studios to open air demonstrations and workplace meetings. Foot was one of the few Labour Party politicians who could lay claim to mastering these settings.
