Tony Benn

So Geoff and I went to see Tony Benn speak this evening at an event supporting the publication of a http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/082646596X of his.
The talk – well more a discussion – was at the Conway Hall in Holborn, a real old-school political debating centre.
The turn out was reasonable and a very sprightly Benn spoke for about half an hour about a number of issues including both Europe and war in Iraq. Then he opened it up to a wider discussion. This part could have gone better, but he’s undoubtedly a fascinating man, and you couldn’t really argue with anything that he said.
