    That's more like it. Real Labour rather than New Labour. What must Tony (who once tried to talk me into becoming a politician) and Ralph Milliband think of their respective sons?...

    Tony Benn, the irrepressible Labour Party Cabinet minister, MP and anti-war leader, died last month (March 2014) at 88.

I also feel that he didn't actually engage with many of the people he took it on hims...

    Found the diaries to be pretty dry, not salacious and exciting like the Alan Clark diaries - he was the real life Alan B'stard. Nevertheless, Benn reveals the machinations of inner government in and out of power, he must be admired as a man of principle who always stood up for the working man and st...
