Tony Benn takes over Today

Whether the BBC is right or wrong not to allow a broadcast for Gaza aid is a matter for debate.  The programme has just had Tony Benn on to discuss why he will be attending the protest outside Broadcasting House.

The old pro steels the show and silences poor old Ed Stourton.  Then he just reads out the appeal address.  Marvellous stuff.  No spin, no sound bites; just a politician who is capable of using his vast experience to get his point over.

I doubt any of the current political class could come close to the way Benn performed.
