Tony Benn, at 82, is still an active British political figure. Serving under James Callaghan in the 1970s, and earlier as Secretary of State for Industry during Harald Wilson's premiership, the long-serving politician gave Wikinews an extended phone interview.

Speaking at-length on a wide range of topics Benn explains why he is not a member of New Labour, stressing that, "[...] when Mrs Thatcher was asked her greatest achievment, she said 'New Labour'." He also discusses his hope for Gordon Brown's time as Prime Minister.

Referring back to his time as Secretary of State for Industry, Benn explains the jobs of people working on Concorde were more important than "a piece of tin", and he fought to get many of the aviation engineers working on the project their first-ever flight on board the iconic aircraft.

[Any additional detail here is good, but not essential. For example, if the interviewed figure is about to take part in an upcoming event, that could be included. If such is not within the audio interview, it would require sourcing from elsewhere. —Ed.]

Note
  • The actual text of this is a grand-total of five sentences. It involves little-to-no work that could be construed as analysis.
  • The objective with the text is to encourage people to listen to the audio; two quotes are pulled here to try and do that. The Thatcher one is obvious, but calling Concorde "a piece of tin" should be suitably provocative.
