Am watching the Woman Justice and Gender Equlaity at the moment, and it's all gone a bit off-topic with proceedings turning to an appraisal of Lady Thatcher. As a recent report of her death illustrated, feelings about her are polemic. She is the political Marmite, you either love her or hate her. However, listening to the Tory side arguing they have implied that she was a feminist. Yeh, for sure; a regular bra-burner.
Additionally, Eleanor Laing the Tory spokesperson for Women pointed out that there were no men on the Labour benches and then went through her own ranks pointing out the chaps. Well she missed one out, because unless my eyes are playing up again, Julian Clary was on the Tory benches.
