Radical Soapbox has now been up and running for 3 years and a number of, I hope, contentious pieces offering food for thought have been posted. Radical is a new age return to old style political discourse. Speakers stood on a soapboxes to air their views, which were not covered by the mainstream political parties or the mainstream media. Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park, London, was the best known for soapbox oratory but soapboxes were put down in markets and high streets all over Britain.

Being heckled by the audience was part and parcel of getting on your soapbox and heckling is allowed on this site though it is called comments!! If your comment is running rather long, then please send it to me and I’ll be happy to publish it as a guest article.

I am active in Occupy London and a member of the Green Party.

I hope you enjoy Radical Soapbox.

    Congratulations, Michael, on getting on your soapbox.

    Just letting you know that I visited you here.

    See you back in London,


  2. Excellent, found your soapbox from your letter in the Guardian of 10 November. I’ll tweet it when it’s on the blog.
