Chicken Tikka Masala Speech Essay

In this section, we will briefly summarize the main elements of our analysis of the Chicken Tikka Masala speech by Robin Cook.

In our analysis, we look at the topics of the speech— British identity and multiculturalism— focusing on the way the speaker explores them by demonstrating that British identity is not defined by race and that immigrants add value to the country’s economy and culture.

We discuss who the speaker is and how he constructs his credibility, looking at his political background as a Labour Party minister. We focus on the audience which is the general British public—especially those who associate British identity with race—and the way the speaker tries to engage and persuade them to change their views.

We also outline the general circumstances of the speech—where the speech was delivered and the political context at that time in Britain.

We will try to assess whether the speaker achieves his intention of convincing the audience that multiculturalism is desirable, arguing that it represents an advantage to the UK and a way of renewing British identity.

Finally, we will discuss the way the speaker uses language and rhetorical devices to achieve his purposes, focusing on his skilful use of repetitions and the extensive appeal to reason by using logical arguments and historical evidence to support his views.

...The Chicken Incident Everyone has an extremely embarrassing experience, that seems horrifically terrible at the time, but upon reflection becomes a completely hilarious occurrence in their life. This episode can be anything from falling down the grand staircase in high school, to splattering a pan of chicken in the walk-in cooler at work. This is mine. I had been working for the Culver’s Franchise Association for virtually three years, in which my primary job was drive-thru and other “front house” positions. I occasionally worked in the kitchen, but not enough to know the entire swing of things that well. This particular night was a pretty ordinary night at the restaurant. I was situated on drive-thru, and was also scheduled to close that same position. As closing time rolled around I found myself bombarded with a plethora of tasks, and to accomplish them I needed to be able t! o access the sink. I walked over to the sink to find an enormous bucket filled to the brim with water and chicken. This bucket needed to be carried to the cooler for the night, but whoever left it there had forgotten about it and it remained in my sink. Well, instead of calling for my co-worker to carry the chicken to the cooler, I decided to take it upon myself and help them out. Looking back in hindsight, I now ask myself, “What was I thinking?” I hoisted the pail of chicken and water out of the sink and headed towards the cooler. As I approached the cooler I rested the bucket on a nearby......

Summary - Chicken Tikka Masala

...Homework – Selective Summary In the extract "Chicken Tikka Massala" from a speach given by the former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, which was reprinted by The Guardian on 19 April 2001, the orator describes the aspects that, in his opinion, define the British as a race. He starts by stating that the British are not what one would commonly understand by a race, but a collective of different ones, i.e. communities that have migrated to Britain in the past and now form part of it. According to Cook, there are only few people in England who are indigenously British. Most have foreign ancestors and are influenced by other nations that have politically, confessionally and historically influenced Britain. The orator gives various examples of countries that had a noticeable influence on the Britons, mentioning the Saxons, Angles, Normans, Dutch and, most explicitly, Richard the Lionheart, the British paragon of a man of honour, who, for his part, spoke French and was allied with the Jewish community. As stated by him, in Britain's capital London, which is home to over 30 ethnic communities, more than 300 languages are spoken, which underlines his intention of depicting the British as a people made up of an abundance of races. Cook believes that immigration is important both for ethical and economical reasons. It strengthens a country's economy and increases its attractivity for international companies. Furthermore, moderately legalising immigration provides......

...immigrants. Which for an example could be able to work at the airport, so a lot of international and different languages could be spoken. 9. What connotations do the words “purity” and Ethnicity” have in the Cook’s speech? Explain how these connotations are different from traditional connotations of the words. Why does Cook want to change their usual connotation. Not many people want (as hard it may sound) want strangers and totally different people into there beloved country. The words ethnicity and purity is more positive and give a feeling of tolerance and openness toward a multicultural society. 10. In what ways is Chicken Tikka Masala a perfect illustration of how British national identity becomes multicultural? How is it a symbol of impurity? The British people have absorbed and adapted from the other cultures. It is a Indian dish, where the masala was added to satisfy to British people to have there meat served in gravy. The Indian and as well the British people have combined and made something good out of it. It is a symbol of the Indian being accepted as a part of the national (dish) and not just immigrants, and also a symbol of Britain letting them in/invite them to fully join them in a community....

Robin Cook's chicken tikka masala speech Extracts from a speech by Robin Cook, the Foreign Secretary, to the Social Market Foundation in London The Guardian, Thursday 19 April 2001 Tonight I want to celebrate Britishness. As Foreign Secretary I see every day the importance of our relations with foreign countries to the strength of our economy, to the security of our nation, to the safety of our people against organised crime, even to the health of our environment. A globalised world demands more foreign contacts than even Britain has experienced in the past. 5~ I also know that we are likely to make our way more successfully in the world if we are secure in our British identity, and confident about its future. (...). Sadly, it has become fashionable for some to argue that British identity is under siege~ perhaps even in a state of terminal decline. The .threat is said to come in three forms. First,...

...Nine Ten, a Big Fat Hen. Are Arsenicals in Chicken Worth the Risk? According to an article at Science Daily, “The annual per capita human consumption of poultry products is approximately 100 lbs. This is greater demand than that of any other animal- or vegetable-derived protein source in the U.S. To satisfy this demand, each year, the U.S. poultry industry raises nearly 9 billion broiler chickens” ("Banned Antibiotics”). In order to accomplish raising this many chickens the farmers have found it necessary to use antibiotic compounds containing arsenic. Arsenic is a medication that farmers put in the chicken feed to help chickens grow heavier at a much faster rate, help prevent diseases, and give support to tissue and vascular development. This will make the muscle of the chickens more appealing to the consumers (Greiff). Thus, they are produced in a much shorter time span. Critics of the use of growth promoters such as arsenicals point out disturbing side effects. For example: the chickens become extremely overweight. This reaches the point where their legs cannot even hold up their bodies. This causes them to fall over and eventually die. Some of the chickens that make it past the farms and into the grocery store can carry bacteria that can cause foodborne illnesses and can even cause cancer. Defenders of the use of the arsenic-containing antibiotics argue that with the use of these antibiotics, money can be saved not only by the company, but also for the consumers...

...while Coke had dominated fountain sales. Coca-Cola had a 65% share of the fountain market in 2000 while Pepsi had 21%. Competition for fountain sales was intense as fountains were one of the core distribution channels for their beverage products. Both companies practice strong partner relationship management (PRM) to forge long-term partnerships with their channel members. Coke and Pepsi were investing in the development of fountain equipment, such as service dispensers, and provided their fountain customers with cups, point-of-sale material, advertising, and in-store promotions to increase brand presence. After Pepsi entered the fast food restaurant business with the acquisitions of Pizza Hut (1978), Taco Bell (1986) and Kentucky Fried Chicken (1986), Coca Cola persuaded other chains such as Wendy’s and Burger King to switch to Coke while retaining exclusivity deals with McDonald’s. The competition to dominate the fountain distribution channel have been long lasting with Coke, just scoring a big coup by winning the soft-drink business at Subway, a fast-food chain now bigger than McDonald's, that had previously served only Pepsi. This is a scenario where Coca Cola have managed to convince Subway that they can succeed better by working together as a part of a cohesive value delivery system. Channel members typically seek intensive distribution- a strategy in which they stock their products in as many outlets as possible. This policy of intensive distribution ensures......

...absence of genuine consent). Discharge of a contract means the end, conclusion or termination of the contract. That is, termination occurs when both parties cease to be bound to perform any contractual obligations. A contract can be discharged in a number of ways. Those discussed in this lecture are: discharge by performance discharge by agreement discharge by operation of law discharge by breach Discharge by Performance Discharge by performance occurs when the contract comes to an end by each party having performed all of their obligations imposed by it. The performance must be precise - near enough is not sufficient, and the contractual obligations must be performed exactly to discharge the contract by performance. Case Summary reading – Understanding Business Law (2008) text, page 186 (section 7.6) Sumpter v Hedges [1898] 1 QB 673 Partial performance gives no right to payment unless: a) it is a "Divisible" and not an "Entire" contract: When one party is entitled to part payment (i.e. to render interim accounts) for part performance, then the contract is a divisible contract; entire contracts do not entitle a party to payment until full performance of the contract has been rendered. Contracts are normally presumed to be "entire" unless the contrary can be shown. A contract to paint a house for $5,000 may be interpreted as an entire contract, requiring full performance by the painter for payment. On the other hand, a contract to paint a house with......
