What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you? R.I.P Tony Benn

    “If we can find the money to kill people, we can find the money to help people.”
    “Making mistakes is how you learn.”
    “The House of Lords is the British Outer Mongolia for retired politicians.”
    “I think there are two ways in which people are controlled. First of all frighten people and secondly, demoralise them.”

    Had his place on the big stage. RIP

    Very sad such a great thinker and speaker has passed.

    I tend to lean right of centre, but I always found it extremely difficult not to respect Tony Benn.
    A great speaker indeed, and yes, also very much a great thinker.

    He was quite unique; there is no one in politics like him.
    He will be sadly missed by all sides.
    God rest his soul.
