I'm sorry about this, but can I get an explanation as to why you were unable to use Wikipedia yourself.

Because there's some myth that all Tory MPs are from rich backgrounds and only look after the aristocracy. They seem to show that ordinary people can get to the top.

Eric Pickles went to a poly.

It is a bit different for me, as a woman. She represents to me what it is possible to achieve through hard work and merit being born into a working class environment. She didn't need any kind of positive discrimination to get to where she got to. I know many women wouldn't agree with me solely because of her policies and the way she got things done. But anyway, I'm going off topic

Ok. Your picture of Boris confused me. I thought you were a guy who worshipped her. Now it makes sense.

I chuckle how a woman politician can fight against all of that and make it to the top and left wing feminists still say she sold them out.

I'm afraid I agree with MatureStudents post, many posters here see the word 'Tory' and think Upper Class. They don't know about Majors humble background.
