Labour MPs pay tribute to 'political giant' Tony Benn


Sad to hear that my predecessor in Chesterfield Tony Benn has died. He was a kind man,a political giant& one of the great orators of any era


Admired so many things about Benn: unwavering principles; always open to new ideas; stellar political speaker but unfailingly courteous.


Terribly sorry to hear about Tony Benn. Thoughts are with all his family and many friends…
