Tony Benn was one of Britain's most controversial yet best-loved politicians - and, in his diaries, one of the most perceptive observers of the goings-on at Westminster. This volume charts the years of his retirement from Parliament 'to devote more time to politics'. Warm, humane, revelatory and often amusing, he skewers the Blair government, rages against the folly of the Iraq war, and reflects on the pleasures and challenges of old age.
