Winston Churchill-The Most Inspirational Orator of All Time

A new survey claims that only Winston Churchill was a better inspiring orator than Martin Luther King.

To mark the 50th anniversary of King's "I have a dream" speech on 28 August, ComRes survey for The Independent asked people to compare King with eight other speakers.

The resulting league table showed being dead is the most important qualification for a high ranking, and that current or recent UK politicians are the worst rated.

David Cameron is saved from last place only by his immediate predecessor at No 10.

39 percent said Churchill was a "more inspiring" speaker than King, and a further 36 percent that he was "about the same" - presumably thinking of his wartime radio addresses rather than his postwar claim that a Labour government "would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo".

Only 11 percent said Churchill was "less inspiring" than King.

John F Kennedy comes third in the table. The 50th anniversary of his assassination, three months after King's speech, falls this 22 November.

Margaret Thatcher, whose "lady is not for turning" speech was much replayed when she died in April, comes fourth.
