>No there's a difference, Radha I believe writes her own speeches and is
therefore entirely responsible for thie soporific qualities. HRM simply
reads what is written for her by some one in the Prime Ministers PR Office,
therefore it is her job to be soporific. I think it would be difficult to
get enthusiastic over words one not only didn't write, but with which one
might not agree at all. After all, the speech to open parliament sort of
lays out the ruling party's programme for the year. I think she's kind of a
saint for doing it, I know I wouldn't!
