Still the Earl of Stansgate in some respects. His son Hilllary has done well without cow-towing to left-wing trade unionists and losing the nuclear deterrent argument.Still a real character in the political world and much better than than that extremist old f..t Dennis Skinner!

Wishing Mr Benn a speedy recovery. A legendary politician - a highly principled politician. A very alien concept on the tory infested Island!
