Speaker's Corner at Hyde Park is the only place in Britain where demonstrators can assemble without prior police permission, a perennial hot favorite location for preachers and speakers of all types wanting to be heard. On Sunday mornings, orators turn up with a box or stepladder and harangue their audience on whatever it is they feel strongly about, be it the government, religion or war.
