Our speaker David Dando






David Dando told us the 18th century story of Englishman Thomas Paine, son of a corset maker, who followed briefly in his father’s footsteps, but later took to writing pamphlets such as “Common Sense” and “The Rights of Man”. These often struck a chord with the general populace, and sold widely, but often irritated the establishment.He travelled and had influence with the leaders of the Independence Movement in the USA, and later moved to France as the Revolution progressed.
