last time i was there was way back in the 1980's. But in time i got fed up with it, iv got other better places to go than to lively debates with wishy washy ideas

Been there a few times, not regularly, but now and again, back in the fifties.

I used to visit Speaker's Corner fairly regularly in the 1960's when I had a girlfriend in London.

One of the regular speakers was H G Wells' grandson - or so he claimed. He certainly looked very much like photos of the great author.

I can't remember a solitary thing about the subjects of his speeches, except that they were hugely varied, and very witty.

The humour of many of the speakers was supplemented by good-natured heckling, which was a tradition at Speaker's Corner. The repartee was often hilarious.
