Implied textSpeeches: "I knew this morning that I was going to make a speech that would
offend, and even hurt, many of my friends. I know that you are deeply convinced that the
action you suggest is the most effective way of influencing international affairs. I am
deeply convinced that you are wrong. It is therefore not a question of who is in favour of
the Hydrogen bomb, but a question of what is the most effective way of getting the damn
thing destroyed. It is the most difficult of all problems facing mankind. But if you carry
this resolution and follow out all its implications -- and do not run away from it -- you
will send a British Foreign Secretary, whoever he may be, naked into the conference
chamber. ... And you call that statesmanship? I call it an emotional spasm." Speech at the
Labour Party Conference, 4 October, 1957, on unilateral nuclear disarmament. [wikiquote
