One of my favourite photos

imageLabour's Tony Benn and Denis Healey during their party's conference in 1981.  Note Edna in the background.

The photo appears at the top of this article in The Guardian.  The debt of gratitude that the Labour party owes to Healey has never been fully recognised.  If Healey had lost that deputy leadership contest the party would have split.  If my memory is correct the photo was taken before the vote.
