My favourite MPs in the German Bundestag (I)
Good rhetorics is rarely seen in the German Bundestag, where reading out one's written speech is the fail-safe way most MPs in Germany prefer. However, there are some speakers who still manage to deliver a speech without a manuscript and who could even be called entertaining. One of them is Heinz Riesenhuber, currently the oldest MP in the Bundestag. Although he sometimes has a tendency to makes speeches that would rather run in the category "curiosity", most of his appearances are both entertaining and to the point.
