Dropping like flies

Another former Cabinet Minister of Margaret Thatcher has died.

The undistinguished socialist Ian Gilmour has died.
He was a non entity whom Thatcher sacked after a year and a half, and later he was a strident critic of her Government by making all manner of predictions, which invariably saw the opposite actually occur.

This brings to three the number of Margaret Thatcher's Cabinet who have expired so far this year, the others being bumbling John Biffen and the virtually invisible Francis Cockfield ...(Lord who?!?!)

Although they are all old, it seems they have been dying in large numbers lately! Sticking out tongue

Fortunately, the great ones like Norman Tebbit and Cecil Parkinson are still spritely! Laughing out loud
