Where I work we opened a Centre for Social Justice. It was opened by Tony Benn who gave what has become an annual Caroline Benn memorial lecture (in memory of his wife who had recently died). I have never been so inspired by someone basically just chatting in the whole of my life. My abiding memory is driving into the car park and seeing Tony Benn sitting in the middle the car park on his rucksack smoking his pipe. Apparently he wasn't overly impressed by the small yellow rectangle at the side of the building that was for smokers so he took himself off to the car park and parked himself there. Love the man.
