Tony Benn

tony_benn.jpgCommenting on the sad death of Tony Benn, Dawn Primarolo MP said:


 "I first met Tony when I was a 21 year old Labour Party member. He inspired a generation of young Labour activists with his passionate beliefs in democracy and social justice, and that party politics can change our communities for the better.

For much of his life Tony was vilified by his opponents, but in recent years he had come to be respected for his principled opinions. He was always extremely loyal to the Labour Party, despite well known differences.

Tony will be remembered in Bristol as the Labour MP for Bristol South East for 30 years, a great campaigner for peace and a powerful advocate for equality.

Politics in Britain has lost a great man."
