He was a liberal, a centrist, and not at all a revolutionary. He was in favour of capitalism with, really, few interventions. Indeed, he trashed Marx's Capital and Marxism in general, was sympathetic to Hayek's Road to Serfdom and a life-long member of the Liberal party, etc, etc.

Why the love?

Mate you're other avatar was far better.

But whats really dumbfounding, and something we need to move away from to politically evolve are the terms you are using. [I know you are taught them. But they are descriptive ********]

Isms, isms isms may as well be the shepards whistle.
If you can't keep up love, it ain't my fault. That's how the world works.

Also, it's "your" other avatar. I am not the avatar myself.

I do respect being told off for grammar, but i do have a disease unfortunately. Which effects the cognitive function. But having sais that youdidnt respond to my point buddy/

Dont be a joiner. Be a changer.
There was no point to respond to (other than vacuous self-congratulations) and I didn't tell you off.

I am not a therapist btw.

Do you consider the late Tony Benn to be a True Socialist®?

Also, what constitutes a True Socialist®?

He was a Christian, and I like that, but he was more “democratic socialist” than anything.

A true Socialist is a Communist - socialists believe in democratic ownership of the means of production, as do Communists. Say A was Capitalism, and B was Communism, then the train from A to B would be Socialism.
