Tony Benn 1925-2014

I never read much about or by Tony Benn, but I was saddened to hear of his passing. This is one of my favourite Tony Benn quotes:
"If one meets a powerful person – Rupert Murdoch, perhaps, or Joe Stalin or Hitler – one can ask five questions: what power do you have; where did you get it; in whose interests do you exercise it; to whom are you accountable; and, how can we get rid of you? Anyone who cannot answer the last of those questions does not live in a democratic system.”
