Stop Clause 27 March c1988...

Talking of storming Government buildings....  Back in the late 1980s I, and a bunch of other angry queers, were on a march aiming to Stop Clause 27 (later 28) and when we passed, we tried to storm 10 Downing Street. Later the big gates were put up to stop anyone entering the street. 

The clause went on to become a (homophobic) law on the English statute books for 15 years until it was finally repealed in 2003. The Scots ditched it in 2000.
