A chance to hear Tony Benn

Island audiences have the opportunity on Wednesday to hear one of the most respected politicians of his generation.

Veteran Labour man Tony Benn will reflect on his life and career at the Gaiety Theatre as a guest of the Sporting and Dining Club.

The former Bristol and Chesterfield MP spent half a century in politics before retiring from parliament in 2001.

A firm opponent of the Iraq war, he met Saddam Hussein shortly before the Gulf War.
