The Benn Dynasty
Tony Benn said at the weekend:
"If it turns out that the Labour Party have a coronation, I mean we might as well have a heredity leader of the Labour Party."
Perhaps it was a little unwise for him to draw attention to the hereditary principle in Labour politics given the Mr Benn's paternal grandad was a Liberal MP, his maternal grandad was also an MP, his dad was a Liberal MP (for the same seat as the grandfather!) then later a Labour Minister, and his son is also an MP, Cabinet Minister, and candidate for the same post - Deputy Leader - that Mr Benn senior ran for.
