Ann Edmondson and Gerard Casale - Do you feel gagged?

   
The French Connection - Ann Edmondson and Gerard Casale - Do you feel gagged?
Speakers of Bromley Speakers Club

As part of Speakers of Bromley's autumn recruitment campaign, both Ann Edmondson and Gerard Casale volunteered to be models for the day and pose for a picture which we hope will make them famous throughout the speaking world.

The picture will be used on the club's new seminar stand as well as some glossy leaflets which will be distributed throughout the Borough of Bromley before Christmas.

The masking tape across their mouths highlights the difficulty that some people find in expressing themselves in public.
