      I’m currently re-re-reading Alan Clark’s first edition of his diaries, including his constant spats with “TK” while at the MoD – excellent stuff.

    Well, her date of birth (October 23, 1922) is on Wikipedia so it’s hardly a secret.

    It could be the order for the afternoon grog ration !!! Given you can swindle money from the chamber , go to prison and get your job back with few objections I would think all Hon Lords and members need a stiff drink

    Watch the you tube clip and you will see this post is a load of bollocks. She was merely indicating the number of WW2 veterans left in the Lords.

    She’s a feisty old bird. My former boss saw her handing round the nibbles at a Defra drinks party in a shapeless cardi, and as little Gummer was the Minister, and thinking that she was a secretary or tea lady pressed into service, jovially asked her what it was like “working for these awful politicians.” I’m Minister of State” was the reply, delivered in an icy tone….

    Bless her. She was my headmaster’s wife, way back in the 60s and a formidable battle axe back then. Shed’d have had any of you above dissing her out on an ear no problem

    Baroness Trumpington. What a wonderful woman. The problem with most of the cretinous commentators today is that they judge the worth of what a person says and does by their outward appearance (agism?). However, just because someone is old doesn’t mean that they are feeble-minded. If there was more respect for older people perhaps we wouldn’t have collectively made as many mistakes over the past few decades. Labour’s destruction of the House of Lords was in no small part due to the lack of respect for people who have gained experience through age. Mr Blair is the epitomy of folie de jeunesse. Not that he looks youthful these days; but that’s what choosing the dark side does for you – prematurely ages and destroys.

    Lady Trumpington was the Lord’s Welsh Office minister in 1991. A fine woman who has a long and distinguished career in local and national politics. She is nobody’s fool. She served in the Womans Land Army n World War 2.

Douglas Carswell’s side-kick Dan Hannan MEP pours water on the obvious question:

“I won’t be joining UKIP, though I wish Douglas Carswell all the best. He has been a superb MP, and it’s honourable to stand for re-election.”



Owen Jones says:
