5.0 out of 5 stars Principled Benn at his best... Outstanding!, 25 Nov. 2002
This review is from: An Audience with Tony Benn (Audio Cassette)
Excellent. Nothing much more to say, except to describe the luxuries of oratorical skill and wealth which await you if you buy these tapes…
Benn covers many different issues on these tapes such as the current situation in Iraq, education, power, the American Empire, democracy, the EU and voter apathy. Everything he says is spiced with his life experiences, vast historical knowledge, moral principles and his great sense of humour.
Each of the two tapes are produced from a mixture of two appearances on his “Free at Last” roadshow after he retired as an MP devoting “more time to politics”. One at the Old Vic Theatre, London and the other at the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow. The first tape consists of first half of the show were Benn gives his many opinions and insight into a huge range of political issues, current affairs, and perhaps most importantly how these affect our everyday lives. Next Benn answers a variety of questions from the audience on the second tape (which is also a mix of the two shows). His comical remarks don’t stop throughout as he answers precise questions which open up and explore his thinking even more.
As a socialist myself I fully enjoyed listening to these tapes but no matter what you believe, everyone will find something interesting, if not entertaining, about what Tony Benn has to offer. One of the greatest speakers of all time. Can I recommend this even more?
