https://slippedisc.com/2019/04/wagners-last-grandchild-has-died/

 

Married an SS guy - was a frequent guest at Bayreuth.

I'm assuming she was the last person alleged to have been one of Hitler's lovers still alive?

I assume so. Didn't even know that one, I have to admit.

Theresa May has revealed that part of the reason why she is so keen to improve mental health provision is because of a family tragedy she has never spoken about before. Her niece committed suicide in her twenties in 2013.

If I was related to May, I'd have topped myself too.

 

Remember, this keenness to improve mental health provision has been going on since Norman Lamb and Vince Cable were in the Coalition and they, not May or Cameron, were the ones pushing it.

 

And still we wait...probably for some US private health care conglomerate to provide it.....:banghead:

 

Remember when Cameron's disabled son died? Just about the point that particular millionaire ceased claiming benefits for the disabled was exactly the point when disabled provision was cut and people started losing their Motability cars. That's the measure of a Tory...

Russell T Davies has this week publicly mentioned the death of his husband (about 18 paragraphs down), former DDP pick Andrew Smith.

 

Smith actually died in late September, but the press chose not to run with it at the time out of respect for his family. I knew about it at the time but elected to wait till public acknowledgement to bring it up for LOTL etc.
