Hilary Benn compared to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini

Hilary Benn was reportedly annoyed this week after being compared to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini by Tosh McDonald, the president of the train drivers’ union ASLEF.

“I don’t get it!” reacted Mr McDonald. “What is he upset about? It was a compliment. Ask anyone – everybody knows that Hitler and Mussolini got the trains to run on time – they were famous for it.”
