Mr Benn is one of the finest politicians this great country of ours has ever seen or is likely to see in my lifetime. I would say give him the crown, make him King, but he would not accept it. He is the the best politician this country has ever or is likely to see. (Maybe Churchill would be a close second). I don’t expect universal agreement. I don’t suppose most of you will agree. What I do say is before you condemn him from what you know from the right-wing media, listen to what he has to say. The man is intelligent, knows his subject and quite often you might find, as I have, that he talks sense. Common sense that we all understand. And more power to the man. The world will be a sadder place when he and people of his ilk are gone.
There have been a lot of comments on the ‘North/South’ divide. I live in the Midlands, so which am I? Can’t you realise the so-called divide is nothing to do with ordinary people suffering. It is the fault of government and the media for biased intervention and reporting. Let’s ignore them and be united. WE are the people, and WE shall (can?) overcome.
