Episode 171 of SLHS remembers the late, great Tony Benn – the aristocratic son of a lord who famously renounced his peerage to become a true champion for worker’s rights.

“In the course of my life I have developed five little democratic questions. If one meets a powerful person–Adolf Hitler, Joe Stalin or Bill Gates–ask them five questions: “What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.” – Tony Benn (1925-2014)
