Tony Benn

The former Labour Cabinet Minister and prominent figure on the left, Tony Benn, passed away this morning. As Frances O’Grady (TUC General Secretary) says he was a friend to the labour movement and stood on the side of progressive campaigns and struggles by ordinary working people. His death, like that of Bob Crow earlier this week, is a great loss to us all.
