Michael Fallon outlines the Conservative party view of defence at The Royal United Services Institute.
The RUSI was established in 1831 by The Duke of Wellington for the study of ‘the art of war’. His bust greets members of the ‘think tank’ and interested parties as they enter its splendid Whitehall headquarters.
I draw some of Michael Fallon’s hand gestures as he outlines the conservative view on defence. They are used sparingly and have a guarded quality.
Members of the RUSI ask pertinent questions and there is gravitas to this electioneering event which is not always so evident.
