Mr Benn At The Library

It's the middle of the week, Wednesday is yet to become the new Thursday so you've got bugger all to do, so why not go and watch a real political firebrand in action?

Londonist favourite Tony Benn will be at the British Library tonight talking about "the role of the past in shaping our understanding of the situation that faces humanity at the beginning of the 21st century".

With a bit of luck he'll also get his pipe out and slag off Tony Blair.

The talk begins at 6.30pm, tickets are £5 and can be booked via 020 7412 7222.

I've always been a fan of Tony Benn - not so much for his views, but for his honesty and fearless criticism. Shame I've got a lecture tonight or I would have gone.

It's just a pity that his son Hilary has turned out to be such a New Labour pillock!
