RIP Tony Benn

Labour MP Tony Benn has died this morning aged 88.

Benn was a well-respected MP and despite some unpopular views on abolishing the monarchy and supporting Sinn Féin he was one of the most popular on both sides of the political divide. He was a supporter of an EU referendum and opposed the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. He also criticised the IMF, World Bank and EU Commission who he said were unelected and unaccountable.
