Ask the powerful 5 questions
1. What power have you got?
2. Where did you get it from?
3. In whose interest do you exercise it?
4. To whom are you accountable?
5. How can we get rid of you?
Only democracy gives us that right. That is why no-one in power likes democracy - and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it. Including you and me - here and now.
The difference between Tony Benn and me is that I believe that these rights should be afforded to the people of Iraq. I rather suspect he doesn't.
