Tony Benn was much like many other politician's but his heart was for the people of this nation, like the old liberal party before them Labour became
a platform of social reform and stand's for the people of the country.
Labour is not Communism it is socialist but even Corbyn is only moderate left wing but compared to the right wing swing of today's conservatism that
is very left.
Everything Mr Benn said in this VIDEO was correct, in fact it was absolutely correct.
I have to say to you also that Labour was NEVER against the Rich it WAS for the majority and about a more fair and equal society and the rich do NOT
like that because they get more heavily taxed and have to pull there weight evenly in such a society.
Mr Benn was a decent man and you know something else Hypocrite or no and I would say No his personal wealth ensured he was not in it for himself like
all those corrupt politician's on both sides of the divide, like the VESTED interests of the Tory Elite and there Corporate chum's or the Loony left
(Militant/Trotskyist - the like's of Derek Hatton etc) that tried to pull Labour down to there level and while they preached socialism they ended up
being chauffeur driven around and wearing mink and expensive suit's.
But Benn, Foot and several other long time Labour MP's, Lord's and members were men whom were above reproach, they were not in it for themselves,
they had there career and invested themselves but they did it with good intent and true intellect and while there are men like that and they are
seemingly a dying breed Labour will remain Labour, if the like's of Hatton had gained control of the party however it would as under Blair (but only
moderately less bad than it would have been under Hatton) have been a free for all come and eat your fill for the true hypocrites whom claim socialist
motivations but are only really in it for themselves.
But as to Hypocrite I actually do not believe he was one, Foot maybe as he chose to wear that ridiculous donkey jacket but was also very much a
member of the elite class (though Foot was actually agood man and his intention too was pure) and it is worth saying that as Benn AND Foot prove
Labour is a democratic party, in fact the only democratic party in this country it's representation elected by it's members with very few under the
table deal's, especially since the Trotskyist (whom were and are a corrupt bunch of sod's like a dirty refleciton of the Tory's actually) REAL
hypocrites of the Militant movement were kicked out.
Blair sucked labour to the right, so far to the right the Tory's could then only go even further right to keep there identity and he destroyed it but
whatever people think of the man Corbyn has at least shown that people want OLD Labour back, not militant or the false and corrupt New Labour with
it's Blair's and Brown's but old Labour that represented the right's of the people, that ensured fair and just society, peoples right's and an end to
poverty in this nation was at least in the government's heart and among it's main it's intention's when they were in power.
