Tony Benn 3 April 1925 – 14 March 2014
"If we can find the money to kill people, we can find the money to help people"
"I'm not frightened about death. I don’t know why, but I just feel that at a certain
moment your switch is switched off, and that’s it. And you can’t do anything about it."
Farewell to Tony Benn, beloved British democrat, socialist, parliamentarian, writer, husband, father, grandfather, technophile, pipe smoker, philanthropist, lover of mankind, diarist, orator, champion of the poor and the downtrodden, proud and consistent fighter against war and injustice. He died today at the ripe old age of eighty eight with his family around him.
