    Death Anniversary Thread

    On this day in 1994 peer in the House of Baroness Joan Vickers died aged 86. She was originally a member of the national Liberal party which had broken away from the Liberal party. The National Liberal party ceased to exist in 1968 after years of local pacts at the general election with the conservative were there was agreement in some seats not to stand against each other - resulting in a final formal merger between the two parties. Her family background was very well-known connected, her father being a stockbroker who counted King Edward VII as one of his clients. Joan was also presented to the Royal Court by the wife of Winston Churchill- although Winston himself told Joan when she revealed to him that she wanted to go into politics that he did not approve of women going into politics and didn't think it was a good idea . He did however advise her to wear a pretty hat and join the London County Council. So in 1936 she was elected a member of the Ladies Grand council of the Primrose league and in 1937 she was elected to London County council representing the district of Norwood. She was the only female member of the National Liberal Party to represent them nationally. In 1955 she was elected as the MP for Plymouth Devonport defeating the future leader of the Labour Party Michael Foot by around just 100 votes. She left the house of commons in 1974 after losing to the labour candidate and future SDP breakaway rebel David Owen in the general election . She was subsequently made a house of lords peer in 1975. She never became a government minister largely many think because she had a history of voting by conscience on many issues rather than the party line.

    12. Queen Elizabeth II

    Oh I think it's a positive thing because there has been some talk she would never be seen in public in a wheelchair or Queen Mum style mobile as she was too reluctant .So if as it seems that transpires not to be true all to the good. I think such choices are likely to extend life rather than be seen as a sign of imminent or sad decline. Enjoy the Chelsea Flower show!
