Analysis of Persuasive Techniques


This paper will examine and analyse an article from The Guardian newspaper from the United Kingdom, focusing on the legacy left by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Livingstone, it should be noted, is a former Mayor of London, and a member of the Labour Party. He also came into conflict with Thatcher during the 1980s when he headed the Greater London Council. This context is crucial to understanding the overall persuasive techniques, which will be examined in greater detail and a theoretical context established.
