BRITAIN: Wife Of PM Appears At Gay Club To "Celebrate LGBT Achievements"

Sarah Brown, wife of UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, made an appearance at the popular Duckie party at London's Vauxhall Tavern on Saturday night to "celebrate LGBT achievements" since the Labour Party took power in 1997.
The Duckie event, held at the Royal Vauxhaul Tavern is one of the main arty gay club nights in London and is hosted by lesbian comedian Amy Lame. Mrs Brown was there in the final weekend before the general election, which current polling suggests her husband is to lose. She and the Labour Party have made particular effort to appeal to the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered) community. Last July, she took part in the London gay pride march, after her husband hosted an intimate reception at 10 Downing Street. She was there officially there to mark 13 years to the day that New Labour won the 1997 general election and began the journey that would eventually lead to an equal age of consent and gays serving in the military.
Sarah Brown had tweeted her attendance at the club several hours earlier in the day. While at Duckie, she pulled the ticket for that night's raffle. The winning patron's ticket? Number 10. However, that omen is unlikely to prove true. Labour is currently polling in third place. The election is Thursday.
