Wisdom from Tony Benn

Three wonderful quotes from my favourite politican - former Labour MP Tony Benn - now 81 years old and still going strong.

"The House of Lords is the British Outer Mongolia for retired politicians."

"A faith is something you die for, a doctrine is something you kill for. There is all the difference in the world."

"I'd rather die on my feet making a speech than die of Alzheimer's - and that's what I'm planning to do."
