radicalism around the time of the English Revolution.
It was genuinely interesting :)
that frosties kid in the balls
and slippers. And cardie.
reinvented himself as "tony" and pretended he was some kind of hero of the left. he's a proper socialist, like all the upper classes.
anyway, since when did birth afffect your political views? i'd say that he's all the more admirable. especially his beliefs on democracy saw him renounce his high birth.
then decided it just wouldn't suit me. Thank god for Laura Wolf.
was a particular fave of mine.
that was her twat of a boyfriend?
that guys a cunt.
i just ACTUALLY shrieked when i saw yr profile picture. amazing.
that was alcxxk that wrote that thing about TBs cock. what i like about alcxxk the most is that he knows exactly what i'd think in any given situation.
its on facebook so its true
have you tried stroking it, gradually increasing the speed?
i thought she was with commandercool??
left me for that Northern bore, but yes...
Cool. Where were you when I announced it in a thread. :(
like listening to pinkerton in the dark
in Michael Moore's 'Sicko'.
like he has a mouth full of plums. and is completely arrogant and stupid.
except for the arrogant and stupid bit. Arrogant and brilliant.
He is the least arrogant and stupid person I can think of
arrogance and lack of intelligence.
the man's a pompous idiot. listen to him speak for five minutes. He's kind of charming but he's still really stupid.
knowledge of politics, which betrays the fact that he is far from stupid. It's also really not stupid to remain true to your ideals across half a century whilst everyone else kicks their own down the stairs in the chase for a few pounds and an ounce of power
He has always seemed eminently intelligent to me.
who's one of the biggest mass murderers and human rights abusers in history.
Hang him then
and I respect Tony Benn for a lot of things. But my point isn't an invalid one. If a right-wing politician had an expressed admiration of Hitler or Mussloini (who, let's face it, mudered far less people) he'd be rightly criticised and for it. I don't see why, just 'cos Tony Benn's left wing (as indeed I am) he should escape without criticism for doing the same thing.
And his radical left-wing views.
I suppose so.
he cloned himself as Hilary Benn in order to ensure immortality.
I don't know how to spell that...
basically waving his hands around when he speaks
I often see him sitting outside the All Bar One on Notting Hill Gate smoking his pipe..I always feel the urge to say something, but I never do.
he admires Mao Tse-Tung
Apparently he was a mass murderer
It's pretty easy to establish with the most basic research.
but yes I agree with your sentiments
maybe with his tendencies he could blow them up, with a pipe bomb
better than being feted for destroying whole communities, and the spirit of Britain as a whole
The English have a strong, depressing streak of anti-Welsh sentiment and Britain as a whole doesn't take well to ginger people.
It's the fault of the party.
was no more insane than Thatcher's
as eminently sensible
at a speech thing my office was organising in the royal gallery. I offered him a seat nearer front, in retrospect I could have asked something more interesting.
Best anecdote ever.
about pretty much everything. I can't think of anyone else who has done that wih such conviction.
You big Tory. ;)
He's still a hero. I've never known of anyone who has retained their political integrity like he has. I admire that greatly. Dont you?
Has Tony Benn hacked into your account?
oops, wikepedia says otherwise.
Politics isn't a strong point of mine... will try harder.
and his secretary wrote back a really nice long letter and sent lots of information, bless them.
he's a lovely old man. You vicious, tory brute! Fancy picking on a nice elderly gentleman like Mr. Benn.
FASCIST THATCHERITE SCUM! MAGIE MAGGIE MAGGIE OUT OUT OUT!!
