This would be more appropriate on the talk page of the *new* and developing article which you tried to get speedily deleted. Incidentally "mute" means silent, or unable to speak. I believe the word you were seeking is "moot", and even had you used it this would have been a reflection on you failing to understand that a second interview is being conducted.
As to "fawning", yeah we're all a bunch of radicalised Trotskyite commies on Wikinews - even the Americans. Except for Skenmy, he's a supporter of the Conservative party and sits in the corner. :-P Brian McNeil -----Original Message----- From: wikimediauk-l-boun...@lists.wikimedia.org [mailto:wikimediauk-l-boun...@lists.wikimedia.org] On Behalf Of michael west Sent: 09 January 2009 02:02 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [Wikimediauk-l] Interview with Tony Benn 2009/1/8 Brian McNeil <brian.mcn...@wikinewsie.org> Something that may be of interest to WMUK people. http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Tony_Benn_discusses_politics_with_Wikinews If you want to suggest questions, stick them on the talk. It may be a good idea to listen to the previous interview which is a couple of clicks away from the related news section. Tony Benn is perhaps the most difficult of old Labour to speak to. 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
