Tony Benn in Maidstone
It is such a shame that Labour has headed off in such a different direction to Tony Benn's. The mushy middle ground is now fought by Labs, Libs and Tories with so little to choose between them.
I asked him about whether candidates should refuse to share a platform with fascists or whether we should defeat them in debate. His view was clear that we should enter and win the debate.
A great evening.
Flicking through wikipedia I found this quote from him: "There is no moral difference between a Stealth bomber and a suicide bomber. They both kill innocent people for political reasons."
