#24 – Anthony Neil Wedgwood “Tony” Benn

Today politician Tony Ben died and the outpouring of media ‘comment’ has been heartwarmingly respectful. His politics were a little socialist for many but his passion, humour and dedication seem to have shone through.  It’s been quite lovely to see respect for his talents, rather than negative comment on his politics, shine through. Certainly a change from Margaret Thatchers death not so long ago.

I also found out about this plaque to Suffragette Emily Davison. The little note at the bottom admitting he was putting it up without permission shows a wonderfully mischievous side. I love that 🙂
