Anthony Wedgewood Benn - The 5 Questions

We lost Tony Benn 2 years ago, today. He was a champion of the working class his entire life.

He was, of course, famously anti EU, for his own reasons, a fact that Ukip have pounced on to abuse his memory, while forgetting one thing - Benn would have had a role in Brexit, but he would have had nothing to do with Ukip or Farage.

His famous 5 Questions to ask the powerful:
  • What power have you got?
  • Where did you get it from?
  • In whose interests do you exercise it?
  • To whom are you accountable?
  • 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.
