Tony (Anthony Neil Wedgwood) Benn        1925-2014

 

politician and diarist

 

Tony Benn (...)

was a pivotal figure

in British leftwing politics

in the second half

of the 20th century.

 

A national institution,

instantly recognisable

from his distinctive voice,

intense self-belief

and fondness for a mug of tea and a pipe,

he was held in sufficient regard

that even his critics

usually found some aspect

of his life or career to praise.

 

It had not always been so:

the journalist Bernard Levin

parodied him as "Mr Zig-Zag Loon";

Harold Wilson maintained

that Benn immatured with age;

and the rightwing press came to call him

the most dangerous man in Britain.

Labour Party > leader > John Smith    Smith QC        1938-1994

On This Day - May 16, 1994

 

From The Times Archive

Following the death of John Smith,
the contest for leadership of the Labour Party
looked like being a one-horse race,
with both the media and the Conservatives
expecting Tony Blair to win

 

TONY BLAIR is being urged to stay out of the limelight amid worries among his closest supporters that his Labour leadership bandwagon is racing out of control. Senior Labour figures are voicing fears that the apparent early lead for the shadow Home Secretary, buttressed by a wave of advice, in the Conservative press, to Labour to pick him, could provoke a backlash in the party.

At the same time it became clear that the traditionalist Labour Left is split over who should be its candidate. John Prescott, shadow Employment Secretary, and Robin Cook, shadow Industry Secretary, are both considering standing.

Mr Prescott, the only contender to appear in television interviews, gave what many in the party saw as a clear signal that he will present himself as a unity candidate, capable of bringing together the political and union wings of the movement. The concern of Mr Blair’s backers is heightened by the fact that he and Gordon Brown have yet to decide which of them should stand as the modernisers’ candidate in the election to replace John Smith. Various leading party and union figures have asked the shadow Chancellor to stand in recent days. His backers say that he is better placed to win left-of-centre support than Mr Blair and could more easily take over Mr Smith’s mantle as a unifier of right and left.
