    Lord Tebbit: Blah blah blah blah blah blah same-old same-old same-old blah blah blah

    What a tiresome bore he’s become.

    A vile, disgusting, gutter-crawling worm of a man, desperate for publicity to halt his decline into obsolescence and obscurity.

    On that logic you could say that MP Anne MacIntosh was deselected for NOT supporting equal marriage.

    His argument does not hold up.

    Happy birthday to the Chingford Skinhead in just under two months time. He will be able to celebrate with all of us on the 29th March. Isn’t irony delicious!

    I read “Lord Tebbit:” then just switched off

    Does Tebbit have positive views on anything? He clearly has a problem with the modern world.

      That’s the very definition of conservative (small c) isn’t it? Stop progress at all costs?

    Can’t he just be dissected? Then we could find out if dinosaurs realy were cold-blooded.

      It would be good if science could tell us whether homophobes are just born that way, with the homophobic gene inbuilt …or whether they are created by choice and the environment they grow up in.
      Personally I don’t believe in the homophobic gene theory (lol)

  8. We won’t know whether Tebbit’s garbage is true until we hear the views on same sex marriage of Yeo’s successor….If he’s anti, being branded a bigotted candidate in a bigotted constituency by most of the rest of the country will be fun to watch….

    About time he popped off!

  10. Just what I would expect from this cadaverous old fart.

  11. Too many angry old men in this world. Yet another reason to dump the House of Lords.

  12. Oh dear. I always thoght he was a vile old bigot. Now I know for sure. So how does he explain the deselection of that other Tory who voted AGAINST equal marriage? Presumably he’s saying Yeo’s constituents are simply a bunch of rabid anti-gay religious bigots? How unbelivably out of touch with the modern world he seems ….trapped in a by-gone, prejudiced, hate-filled era. I’m sure he’d be MUCH happier living somewhere that shares his similarly backward views. Russia …?

  13. Bless him , he is of another age but if anyone can find his off button please press it as he makes less and less sense as the years go by. Silly old tosser!

  14. A perhaps timely reminder that being a cheap media whore, desperate to get attention by commenting on any possible controversy, is by no means a new phenomenon.

    “Lord Tebbit also argued that gay people are not currently discriminated against as a gay man has the same right to marry a woman as he does.”

    But a gay woman still does not have the same right to marry a woman as he does (legislation has since been introduced to allow this but has yet to come into force), Tebbit’s comment though was disingenuous as well as both sexist and homophobic.

  16. I do look forward to the day his in the ground pushing up daisies – he may be a old man however its NOT acceptable that he expresses such vile views. He would NEVER say anything relating to Jewish or gay people, like many others but gay people seem to still seem to be a target

  17. sorry that should read Jewish or black people

    Norman Tebbit is utterly dependable. He does exactly what it says on the tin. Unfortunately the tin says “rancid old bigot”.

    1. Craig Y 7 Feb, 8:18pm

      Either that, or ‘well past use-by date.”

  19. Craig Young 6 Feb, 7:56pm

    Good heavens, Norman Tebbit is still alive??!!!

  20. Clearly care in the community is not working. This is the same dickhead who kicked a Chinese Dragon up the backside during a celebration dance……time his medication I think
