It is quite long, but an interesting read:
Rod Eddington's Speech to the Aviation Club of the UK
Incidentally, my best quote from the speech is this one:
I want Britain to be a world leader. I'm an Australian by birth. And while I grieve for the Ashes (enjoy them while you can), I can take comfort from the fact I'm British by descent, I'm proud of what Britain's given the world, and I want this country to stay at the top of the world in trade and political leadership.
I never thought I would ever hear an Australian say something like this!
