Lady Thatcher pulls out of 85th birthday party at No 10 for health reasons | Politics | guardian.co.uk

Lady Thatcher has been forced to pull out of a Downing Street party to mark her 85th birthday after being taken ill with flu, Downing Street said today.

The former prime minister had been due to attend a gathering tonight of around 150 friends and former colleagues hosted by David Cameron to mark the birthday.

It will still go ahead at her insistence, No 10 said, with a fresh event to be put on when she has recovered.

Get away, they were afraid she'd go bonkers and start biting people and give them all leprous rabies.

You mean they havent already?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
