Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Anthony Neil Wedgwood "Tony" Benn (3 April 1925 – 14 March 2014) was a British Labour politician who was a Member of Parliament (MP) for 47 years between 1950 and 2001 and a Cabinet minister under Harold Wilson and James Callaghan in the 1960s and 1970s.Benn inherited a hereditary peerage on his father's death (as 2nd Viscount Stansgate), preventing him continuing as an MP. He fought to remain in the House of Commons, and then campaigned for the ability to renounce the title, a campaign which succeeded with the Peerage Act 1963. In the Labour Government of 1964–70 he served first as Postmaster General, where he oversaw the opening of the Post Office Tower, and later as a "technocratic" Minister of Technology.In 1971–72, when the Labour Party was in Opposition, he was Chairman of the Labour Party. In the Labour Government of 1974–1979, he returned to the Cabinet, initially as Secretary of State for Industry, before being made Secretary of State for Energy, retaining his post when James Callaghan replaced Wilson as Prime Minister. When the Labour Party was in Opposition in the 1980s, he was a prominent figure on its left wing and the term "Bennite" came to be used for someone with radical left-wing politics.Benn was described as "one of the few UK politicians to have become more left-wing after holding ministerial office." After leaving Parliament, Benn was President of the Stop the War Coalition from 2001 until his death.

#Quote
1An Educated Public is harder to Govern.
2I have known Peter Tatchell since 1981 and have the greatest respect for him as a man of principle, consistent in his convictions, non-violent in his methods and wholly committed to the rights of homosexuals to equal treatment before the law as a matter of human rights. This view is not universally shared but it is, at last, becoming accepted by the House of Commons in the drafting of legislation. It is not necessary for anyone to agree with Mr. Tatchell's opinions on this matter, or even to approve of his methods of campaigning, for his own complete integrity to be recognised.
3It's the same each time with progress. First they ignore you, then they say you're mad, then dangerous, then there's a pause and then you can't find anyone who disagrees with you.
4We've tried to make capitalism work with good and humane Labour governments and we haven't succeeded because it can't work, because it rests on injustice.
5When I first met Nelson Mandela he was a terrorist, when I next saw him, he was a Nobel Prize winner and the President of South Africa.
6New Labour is the smallest political party that's ever existed in Britain.
7You can't wish away centuries of tradition and thought and aspirations with a few spin doctors and a few tame journalists.
8I'm not a member of New Labour, I'm a member of the Labour Party.
9All war represents a failure of diplomacy.
10A faith is something you die for, a doctrine is something you kill for. There is all the difference in the world.
11I am teetotal and vegetarian, so I do live on tea. I don't like Earl Grey tea, but it may be a class prejudice against earls.
12[speaking in 2004] "This could be the final corruption: in the end you're seen as a kindly, harmless old gentleman. Well I am kindly, I am old, I could be a gentleman but I'm certainly not harmless."
