Extracts from a speech

Lord Mawson: In the people of this country there is a sleeping giant waiting to be woken from its slumber. You can see this giant dozing in many of our communities.

Governments… with all their resources, often in reality seem to achieve so little, yet social entrepreneurs and local enterprises seem to achieve so much with just one man and a dog. How can we grab hold of the dog’s tail and shake it? This is the big question—the David and Goliath struggle.

When you raise these issues, older and wiser heads than me predictably give weary smiles because they have heard it all before and know how difficult it is in reality to do. That might be so, but someone needs to throw the stone to create the ripples.
So… David is fighting the sleeping giant? By slinging a stone at him that creates ripples? Is it the dog that's rippling? WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING ON?

He's throwing the jackboot in the melting pot while the fascist octopus sings it's swan-song in the background.
