Hi jypsybear, I wouldn't trust Anthony Bennett as far as I could spit.
This is a personal and political view. I was very active in the Labour Party for over 30 years - Constituency Secretary and Chair, official candidate at elections (albeit in a True Blue stockbroker-belt constituency) Annual Conf delegate, Women's Conf Delegate blah blah blah until Tony Blair was imposed on the party, when I resigned.
Anthony Bennet was a member of the Labour Party for a number of years before he more or less got thrown out. Let's just say, I encountered him more times than I care to remember.
I loathe the man. IMO he's an opportunistic, self-seeking, self-publicising fool who will jump on any passing bandwagon as a platform and springboard for to promote his own vile extreme right-wing agenda. (I would bracket him with the Neo-Cons).
Don't take my word for it though, you must make up your own mind
