Tony Benn 1925-2014

Ask the powerful five questions:

What power have you got?

Where did you get it from?

In whose interests do you exercise it?

To whom are you accountable?

How can we get rid of you?

Only democracy gives us that right. That is why no-one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it: including you and me, here and now.

Tony Benn, 2005
