Inaugural Weatherill Lecture next Monday
02/03/2010 08:34:00

The inaugural lecture, hosted by the Weatherill Society, will be held at Croydon Parish Church on Monday 8th March at 1pm. The guest speaker is Tony Benn, who will be speaking about citizenship and integrity in public life. On that issue, if not on others, I suspect I will agree with much of what he has to say.

The sad death today of Michael Foot has reminded us all of the integrity of "Old Labour" politicians. They were wrong just as often as "New Labour" ones, but it is impossible to imagine either Benn or Foot committing the possibly treasonable offence of taking our troops to war on the basis of a lie.

I had that Tony Benn in the back of my cab once, and I had no qualms about doing so. If any of the current cabinet tried to hail me I would drive straight past, unless they were standing by a puddle.
