Tony Benn: 'I'm free to represent people's interests'

Veteran left-wing campaigner Tony Benn, who has died at the age of 88, recalled in his audio diary in 1992 that he felt that there was an alienation in politics.

He complained about a lack of exchange between electorate and people, and said that he felt "free of the whole damn thing".

This is a clip from the first series of The Benn Tapes , first broadcast on BBC Radio in 1993.
