Routledge has been together with her partner of approx. 20 years Betty Boothroyd, who is well known for being the 'Speaker of the House' (of Commons).

Is this true? It was on wikipedia?

I heard she had a companion, didn't think it was her though. I wouldn't trust wikipedia.People edit it with a load of rubbish.

No she isn't. She lives alone in a house she bought in 1969. She has a companion, but he is male

Says on imdb on the board that her long term companion was Phyllis Claymore. Definately not a mans name. Though its probably not true.

I'd heard many moons ago that she was best mates with Betty Boothroyd. I read it in the Mail, the article could have said more but didn't want to go there. That was my impression.

And btw, Moira Stewart is saving herself until the day I give in. Honestly, the word no is so not a concept with her

I have no idea who she's with and nor do I care but what has it got to do with you, me or anyone else.Surely she's entitled to a private life. Who are you with ?

I know. It's shocking the way people come on to these threads and feel the need to add to speculation. Oh well, back to the 100% Allegations Thread

I heard she was with Ellen Degeneres now and BillieJean King hasn't forgiven her for the affair with Martina Navratalove.

There does seem to have been an outbreak over the past few months of pages being altered on Wikipedia to claim that many people are gay , if all were to be believed !!!! well maybe some are true but I think some people also have a lot of spare time on their hands.

Shame as Wikipedia does have many contributors putting up genuine useful info.

I'm surprised the Mail held themselves back - they're not normally so coy.
