It's hard to find a picture of Benn without his ever-present pipe. But the one above also includes a "cuppa." Still, I couldn't resist this one as well:
Sir Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn, the second Viscount Stansgate, renounced his title in 1963 to remain in the House of Commons. According to his obit in the Times:
From then on he was known simply as Tony Benn, or by the nickname Wedgie.
I wonder if that means the same thing in Britain as it does in the Colonies.
