Thatcher Wanted To Ban Xes Toys Using Anti-Pronography Laws After Pressure From Campaigners

Recommended Posts

Margaret Thatcher considered banning sex toys using an anti-pornography law as part of a drive to clean up public decency in the 1980s.

Documents released by the National Archives reveal that the former prime minister was persuaded to consider a change in the law by the anti-obscenity campaigner Mary Whitehouse, whom she met on two occasions.

Leon Brittan, the home secretary at the time, wrote to Mrs Thatcher noting that there was a “strong case” to be made for banning sex toys under obscenity laws.

In September 1986 he wrote: “Some of the items in circulation are most objectionable, including some which can cause physical injury,” according to a report in The Times.

He felt that sex toys could fall within the scope of the "deprave and corrupt" test of the 1959 Obscene Publications Act.

Nanny knows best or in this case Leon Brittan does. At least Thatcher had got her priorities right seeking to ban dildos!

Going to have to ban potatoes also.

A vicar claims a potato got stuck up his bottom after he fell on to the vegetable while hanging curtains in the nude.

wpid-article-1333017051091-122a743800000Vicar’s friend: This is a potato

The clergyman, in his 50s, told medical staff at Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital that the accident was definitely not due to a sex game.He had to undergo surgery to extract the spud from his backside, according to The Sun.A&E nurse Trudi Watson said: ‘He explained to me, quite sincerely, he had been hanging curtains naked in he kitchen when he fell backwards on to the kitchen table and on to a potato.’But it’s not for me to question his story.’

Why not use a hair brush handle, or my member? These are not banned.

I had an idea for a TV series called "**** Hospital", where weekly, people fell on unfortunate objects, in the shower, but the BBC rejected it.

If I had a "Thatcher sex toy", I know which orifice it would be for! And I'm not even a Socialist.

....as you do, I know I have hung kitchen curtains up in the nude lots before and it's very risky practice.

he got off lightly i guess, could have been done for indecent exposure

he did not mention whether his kitchen lights were red in colour, poor illumination here could be the culprit for the unfortunate mishap.

Ah, Leon Brittan. Wonder if he will be making the news in 2015.

I was wondering the same thing. The plot thickens. :unsure:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Milligan

Milligan was found dead in his flat in Black Lion Lane, Hammersmith, London, by his secretary Vera Taggart on 7 February 1994.[5] His corpse – naked except for a pair of stockings and suspenders, with an electrical flex tied around its neck and a black bin liner over its head – was discovered in what was presumed to be a state of autoerotic asphyxiation, combined with self-bondage.[1] A detail of his death, which was the subject of much comment and speculation at the time, was that he was found to have had an orange segment in his mouth at the time of his death. The coroner concluded that he had died in the early hours of 7 February.

Seems they also needed to ban bin liners, oranges and electrical flex.

On a serious note, it should be any government's business to consider proposals coming from a wide range of interest groups. And of course reject most of them after due consideration.

That includes the likes of Mrs Whitehouse, on both counts.

of course it should.

vouyeurism is very important for gauging opinon on these sort of matters.

local councillors suspended from trees on bungee-ropes with binoculars are a crucial part of this fact-finding mission into the nations nocturnal habits.

I used to work with a Mr Wijthuis. He was Dutch! It's pronounced "White House"

A strange but true story:

Back in the late 80s I played in a very silly but moderately entertaining punk band. We weren't especially political but we were all students so hating Thatcher was kind of obligatory. It so happened that we had a gig the evening of the day that she resigned so we decided it would be funny, and kind of in-keeping with our act, to buy an inflatable xes doll, put a Thatcher face mask on it, take it on stage with us and then ceremoniously stick a knife in its back (the sort of thing that would get us all arrested these days). Accordingly, we trooped off to Soho to find a suitable doll... here's the funny bit though: we didn't have to buy the mask because it turned out you could actually buy a Thatcher xes doll. To this day I have no idea if it was a novelity item or a standard thing.

I'll bet the miners bought them (Is Mr XYY there?). Hats off the the Cat for being in a "punk band"!
