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

Something that may be of interest to WMUK people.


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 ( )) going on here. The interview is at 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.
