Former Labour MP Tony Benn coming to Potters Bar

ONE of the country’s best known and much loved politicians will be in Potters Bar this week to share his memories of a life in Parliament and discuss his often outspoken views.

Former Labour MP Tony Benn, who is the party’s all time longest serving parliamentarian, will be talking about his life in politics at the Wyllyotts Theatre off Darkes Lane this Friday, November 13.

He will also be answering audience questions after the talk.

Mr Benn retired from the House of Commons in 2001, after 50 years as an MP, and in that time served as a secretary of state under both Harold Wilson and James Callaghan. He also served as Postmaster General from 1964 to 1966.
