Anthony Wedgewood Benn

The former Labour Party minister, Tony Benn, formerly Viscount Stansgate, has died. He was a talented speaker and good writer who devoted his life to public and political service.
But was he living a lie? Where did his true beliefs lie?
For most of my life I always thought of Tony Benn as a man so exaggeratedly left wing, almost a parody, that he must have been a Tory plant; part of a plan to ensure that the socialists would be rendered unelectable for a generation. I suggest that it is for this reason several Labour Party grandees did not appreciate his input as each time Benn opened his mouth votes were lost to the opposition.
