Washing Her Hair?

Tory MP Alan Duncan, who will soon marry longtime lover James Dunseath, invited loads of his party peers to the gay celebration. Unfortunately many of them won’t be attending, including Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister whom Duncan allegedly idolizes: he has a picture of her hanging in his living room. He must be heartbroken. [First Post]

      Thatcher is an old woman. She can’t walk long distances without help. She hasn’t been in public much lately, either. I know the implication is she’s anti-gay because she won’t attend but give her her due–the woman simply doesn’t keep much of a schedule these days due to frailty.

      I do not like that woman, butI agree with Tom. Didn’t she also suffer from a stroke recently?

      I’m no fan of her and Reagan but she’s 82 and her helth hasn’t been good as of lately.

      “Thatcher was advised by her doctors in 2002 to make no more public speeches on health grounds, having suffered several small strokes.[65] According to her former press spokesman Bernard Ingham, Thatcher has no short-term memory as a result of the strokes. On 7 March 2008, Thatcher was admitted to St Thomas’ Hospital, Central London for tests due to health concerns, after she felt ill whilst attending a House of Lords’ dinner.”

      Well, the implication that Thatcher’s anti-gay comes from her government’s approval of Section 28, which banned the “promotion of homosexuality.”

      It exists independently of whether she can attend some homosexual conservative’s non wedding (i.e. civil partnership ceremony) or not.

      Same-sex marriage is only legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, and two American states (California and Massachusetts). Everything else Europeans like to call “marriage” is merely a cheap imitation of it under various guises — civil partnership, registered domestic partnership, civil union, partnership union, unregistered co-habitation, de-facto union, and so forth.

      She didn’t seem to have any problems making it to the women’s final at Wimbledon on Saturday.

      Baroness Thatcher is of another era. Leave Baraoness Thatcher alone!

      On the other hand is Prince Harry going to to be there. I think he’d be up for a little man on man action, you know, if no birds were around.
