(p.125) 8 The oratory of Neil Kinnock
Labour orators from Bevan to Miliband

David S. Moon

Manchester University Press

It was often said that Kinnock’s attributes as a speaker were his greatest strength politically and his oratory and rhetoric are here analysed with relation to this concept of hywl. The argument subsequently presented in this paper is that, while its pedigree is Welsh, what hywl manifests itself as – a style of argumentation/appeal which is neither inherently romantic nor realist in delivery, but essentially related to passion – was ideally suited, temperamentally, to Kinnock’s political cause(s).

Keywords:   Kinnock, renewal, hywl, Welshness
