Tony Benn in action - not bad for 81 years of age!
Whether or not people agree with what Tony Benn says, even his most outspoken opponents must surely admit that to have as much passion, energy and enthusiasm for a cause at almost 82 years of age is wonderful to behold.
This U-Tube clip of Tony speaking in September 2006 displays his passion.
As I have said many times on Simplicity Blog, Tony Benn is my greatest political hero and I was honoured to have an e mail from him recently. This is what he said:
Having left Parliament to devote more time to politics I am free: Lots of experience and no personal ambition. Can't wait for April 3 2025 when I shall have completed my first hundred years and a new century of work begins"
Please enjoy the video clip and regardless of your political views just admire his gift of oratory.
