Publisher's Summary

After he announced his retirement to 'spend more time with politics', much-loved parliamentarian Tony Benn brought his unmistakable presence to the stage in a sell-out 'Evening with' event. His only props: a flask of tea, some rubbed tobacco, and his trademark pipe....

An Audience with Tony Benn is a mix of politics, opinion, and debate as the man himself explores issues of today spiced with memories of the past. He then fields questions from a live audience, answered with his usual mixture of insight, analysis, and piercing wit.

    Story
    "inspirational"

    Heard Tony Benn speak once at a Rock Against Racism rally in Trafalgar Square London. I've been in love with him ever since.
    We have lost one of the best of us and his speaking and writing is informed intelligent and humane. Politics has lost a man of integrity .

    Story
    "We should all listen to this"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you have or haven't heard Tony Benn, agree with him or don't agree with him, it's pure delight to hear him speak. He is a persuasive politician who makes you think about the state of the nation and makes you want to get up and do something.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tony speaks to you in such a polite way. He's passionate about what he's saying but doesn't bully you into submission like so many politicians do.


    What about Tony Benn’s performance did you like?

    He's clear, focussed and so well informed , he engages the audience - makes you laugh then cry.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I miss Tony Benn!


    Any additional comments?

    It's made me re listen to his diaries and has refreshed my interest in politics.
