Norman Tebbit Loses the Plot over Gay Marriage

Norman Tebbit, Elton John and Wham

Well this is awkward.

Norman Tebbit is an 82 year old year old man who in the late 90s wrote to The Telegraph newspaper to complain that a homosexual should never be allowed to become Home Secretary (sorry William Hague). He was also Chairman of the Conservative party in the same decade. True story.

Today he’s been out in force giving a candid interview to The Big Issue about all his latest musings. Here’s a few tit bits.

When we have a queen who is a lesbian and she marries another lady and then decides she would like to have a child and someone donates sperm and she gives birth to a child, is that child heir to the throne?’

The answer is yes Norman. As long as the kid isn’t mad or you know, a massive bigot, it should be fine.

It would lift my worries about inheritance tax because maybe I’d be allowed to marry my son. Why not? Why shouldn’t a mother marry her daughter? Why shouldn’t two elderly sisters living together marry each other?

Everyone’s favourite mad scouse aunt, Nadine Dorries, raised the same point so you’re in good company there.

David Cameron fucked up. [on not providing party unity]

Lord Tebbit gets £300 a day to sit in the House of Lords of spout his thoughts. There’s benefit cheats, and then there’s him.
