Tony Benn (1925-2014)

March 14, 2014

Tony Benn achieved legendary status in his own lifetime as he fought to improve the lot of the working class people of this country. As a politician he presented his arguments in such a way that even his opponents couldn’t resist his charm.

We were very privileged to have him starring at the Left Field political forum on so many occasions. His absence this year will be really sad.
