A little word about Tony Benn

By Nuala McKeever

Y'don't read the news for a few days and so much happens. Tony Benn has died. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have split and Kerry Katona is showing off her pregnant body. All upsetting stories, but none a surprise I suppose.

The Martin-Paltrows apparently announced their "conscious uncoupling" last week. Not sure where, but given the phrase, I'm sure it featured as a lead story in The Pretentious Times.

I'd say the root of their probs is right there. If you can't call a spade a spade in a relationship, it's doomed. As for Tony Benn, no silly words required. Just one. Hero. RIP.
