Iain Gilmour - A Tory with a conscience dies

Ian Gilmour, a leading critic of Margaret thatcher and former Tory Minister has died.

Iain Gilmour was an outspoken supporter of gay rights when it was not fashionable to do so, he opposed the poll tax, did not support Margaret Thatcher when she introduced charges for eye and dental check ups and was critical of the Tories abolition of the Greater London Council. In many ways Ian Gilmour was a Tory with a real soul.

I'm sure it would be completely inappropriate and I mean no offence when I say this, but rather than burying him he should be stuffed and mounted to remind the Tory party of the decent values they used to hold.

It's always sad when we lose someone with principles - there are so few.
