Former Labour cabinet minister Tony Benn died at home at the age of 88 on Friday. The left-wing legend was a formidable opponent in any political argument - but as this video shows he was also able to dominate a discussion with the simple act of falling asleep.

Gillian Duffy, who shot to fame in 2010 after being called a "bigoted woman" by Gordon Brown, takes Benn's disinterest in good humour.
