Tony Benn

Utopias and the Welfare State

A rare opportunity to hear the great speaker and statesman Tony Benn talk
about his vision for the future, including the role of utopian thinking in
relation to welfare and to politics in general today.
Tony Benn retired from Parliament in 2001 as MP for Chesterfield, to ‘devote
more time to politics’. He was the longest-serving Labour MP in the party’s
history, joining in 1942 and first becoming an MP in 1950.
A Cabinet Minister in the Wilson and Callaghan governments from 1964-79, Benn was also an elected member of the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party from 1959-94, and Chairman of the Party in 1971-72.
