Description
Labour MP Tony Benn holds up Zimbabwe, Iran, Vietnam and Kampuchea as examples of how imperialism lies at the root of today’s worldwide political turmoil. He asks his audience to consider why the Cold War is being built up into a major issue by the British government, and why any critic of spending on rearmament is accused of disloyalty.
