The five questions

I’d forgotten these until I saw them quoted in his Wiki entry: Tony Benn’s five questions we should ask any powerful person:

  • What power have you got?
  • Where did you get it from?
  • In whose interests do you use it?
  • To whom are you accountable?
  • How do we get rid of you?

  1. 1. I can shoot fire from my hands and fly.
    2. From a mysterious meteor that crashed into my car.
    3. In the interests of justice.
    4. My heroic conscience.
    5. If I told you, no one could stop the nefarious schemes of Dr Destructo.
