The whole interview is a little fawning (I suspect a little soft-trot ( http://www.socialistparty.org.uk/ )) going on here. The interview is at http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/File:Tony_Benn_Cleaned_Interview.ogg#file and Tony Benn didn't discuss the the collapse of capitalism and had high hopes for Brown. The rest of the interview develops into soft-trot brown nosing - Post- Master General, Concord and not a single mention of the devaluation of the pound which Benn was party to.
Benn is no soothsayer, Brown sold off our gold reserves, universally banks invested in loan stock that was far beyond its actual value. Loans stopped, every high street is plagued with administrators signs and everyone has lost face. I find it very difficult to understand that a soothsayer like Tony Benn didn't spell out clearly that capitalism needs a bust and a job queue. m
