RIP Tony Benn

If one meets a powerful person -- Rupert Murdoch, perhaps, or Joe Stalin or Hitler -- one can ask five questions:
  1. What power do you have?
  2. Where did you get it?
  3. In whose interests do you exercise it?
  4. To whom are you accountable?
  5. And, how can we get rid of you?
Anyone who cannot answer the last of those questions does not live in a democratic system.
