Resurrecting this thread because it shouldn't go unnoticed that That Nice Mr Paulley has got 'Mordor' into Hansard, via the now legendary Tanni Grey-Thompson.   :thumbsup:

She is brilliant. If I met her, I think I'd become tongue-tied in awe.

When I competed back in 2004, I tried to explain to somebody why I did not want my racing chair to be thrown on to a separate bus. I said that I would rather my two year-old child was sent on a separate bus, but then I realised that I sounded like a slightly harsh mother.

Lady GT has improved in recent years... Twitter I think has done her good.

Well, it's hard not to be impressed by her work with the World Bollard Association.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Barakta is correct.  Although TG-T is a Baroness, her form of address is Lady Grey-Thompson.  She would only be called Baroness Grey-Thompson in the address on an envelope (when it would actually be 'The Baroness Grey-Thompson').
