James Keir Hardie was proper cloth cap Socialist. There were Christian association to via The Methodists. Despite right wing n centrist infiltration 20s 30s and later of which Benn was one but as he admitted opined later wished he had seen the light sooner. The Attlee government was most radical with NHS creation and family welfare at the top of the true Labour party movement principles.. remember those? as well as tradition.
Neil Kinnock Wales valley lad... Judas..
following in Nye Bevan footsteps.
Spoke left and acted right as so who so many see the attraction of filthy lucre. As Tony Benn had plenty of worldly wealth he could afford to be principled but Kinnock was from first to last a bully. I have seen him in action against senior citizens at conference in the eighties etc and there is no comparison. Benn was true gentleman and never resorted to. physical aggression
The electoral college was being trialled and eventually morphed into today's fairer system with. Corbyn etc. Benn was the darling of the left and a prince among politicians. We are sorely missing his sort today
