In memoriam: Tony Benn

Mar 14, 2014
Veteran British Labour politician Tony Benn has died at age 88. As Mona Chalabi with FiveThirtyEight entreatied, "If you don't know who Tony Benn is, you should get to know. No other UK politician before or since comes close."  Helen Lewis at the New Statesman shared this twitpic, tweeting, "RIP Tony Benn. He made a secret memorial to suffragette Emily Davison in a Commons broom cupboard." The Huffington Post has that story and a photo gallery as well, with HuffPost UK's Chris York calling this the "Best picture of Tony Benn."
