never like Tony Benn back in the day, but I sort of liked him over the last 20 years. he's sort of grown up to realise how corrrupt and manpulated politics is

He sucks on his pipe. ‘I think Ali G did me a huge amount of good with the young. He came to this house and completely took me in and I argued with him when he said “bitches only get pregnant in order to get benefit” and “people only go on strike to chill out”. And I said: “Don’t be ridiculous”.You see, a lot of the people he interviewed were frightened of him.’

But as Benn was so confident that he was neither racist nor sexist, did that mean he was able to stand up to Ali G? ‘Yes and when I was told it was a hoax, I was furious. But then when I saw it and saw what he had done with the other interviews, I found it hilarious. He’s my main man!’


The whole article is a good read.

Great last paragraph to the article.

Perhaps his career hasn’t ended in failure, but in a worse fate – he has been sentimentalised by the public. ‘That is the worst corruption, to become regarded as a kindly, harmless old gentlemen. Well, I am kindly and I am old, but I am not harmless.’ He chuckles. ‘I got a death threat last year. Hadn’t had one for years. I was so chuffed.’

RIP.

RIP Tony Benn Very sad news indeed. Wish I'd have seen him at the Thameside Theatre now. :(

I will always regret that. A fine man.

I saw him address a meeting here in Blackpool in the early 70s. It was in the corner of a field with a rough PA system. Not sure I agreed with with what he was saying at the time but he said it very well I thought, pretty good orator.

He read excerpts from his diaries on Radio 4 which was interesting listening. Unlike Blair's ramblings they sounded truthful and showed great insight. :)

One of the few politicians that did actually care about the people. He described Blair as Labour's worst leader. I would imagine he thought Blair was a complete and utter cunt.


RIP Tony Benn

Don't hold back. You were quite happy to shove broken glass down the throat of the Rigby killers and pour boiling oil over them so why hold back on Blair who has murdered millions?
