Tony Benn: Ask the powerful five questions

March 14, 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.

Shakespeare wrote “no legacy is so rich as honesty”. Tony Benn left an entire country wealthier with truth.
No sadness here. Just gratitude.
