Anthony Wedgwood Benn and his wife Caroline, carrying the Labour Party's banner, in a three-cornered battle for Sir Stafford Crips' old seat in Bristol SE.
Remembered more than a year ago
He was a Lord. He threw away his Earldom as a left wing Socialist in order to stand for the commons. His original name was Lord Standsgate as I remember it! Although he was very left just as Enoch Powell was very right, they were both very hard workers.

Sir Anthony Wedgewood Benn, what some people will do to get on the political gravy train!

Uncertain whether he was an Earl; believe that he may have been just a scabby Baron.D E Brett
