I am pleased to announce the second nominee this year for the
Jonathan Bowden Oratory Prize, the very popular and gregarious Jez
Turner of National, the founder of the London Forum. Jez has
been nominated for a speech he made on 30th January 2016, which is just
one of many speeches he has made during the year and the frequent public
speaking practice clearly shows in the ebullient speaking style that
Jez has developed.
In this speech Jez employs a number of oratorical devices: employing
humour, rhyme, alliteration, with frequent changes to the pace of his
speech as well as modulation in his voice. Jez is one of British
nationalism’s most accomplished speakers at this time.
