Who was Churchill’s audience? Was it only the members of Parliament?
Answer: Winston Churchill delivered his speech entitled “Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat" at May 13, 1940, after being the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Winston Churchill delivered his speech three days after he became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He served two terms as Prime Minister from May 1940 until July 1945 and from October 1951 until April 1955. It is considered as one of the best speech that influenced the army. The speech was delivered at the house of parliament but, the audience was not the members of the Parliament. Because the statement was given at the beginning of the World War to influence the arms force of Great Britain so that they can take initiatives to face the Nazi’s of Germany with responsibility. I think Churchill’s audiences were not only the members of the parliament but also the British arm forces and the British citizens. It was all about inspiring the citizens and the arm forces regarding the world war and to declaring the condition of British government towards the world communities.
