Tony Benn 1925 – 2014: a politician who actually believed in people
The former Labour Cabinet Minister, author and long-serving MP Tony Benn has passed away today, aged 88.
Mary Wakefield interviewed Benn about the financial crisis and the basic decency at the heart of all human beings in 2009, for The Spectator. It’s well worth a read.
The BBC has a look back at his life in pictures.
What a sad day.
