National Tony Benn Day

We hereby call for a Public Holiday to be named after Anthony Neil Wedgwood "Tony" Benn. This could take the form of a new holiday or a renaming of an existing Bank Holiday. He was a well-respected politician on allsides of the political spectrum, and cared deeply about people. This would be a fitting tribute.
