Internet users researching Margaret Thatcher accidentally crashed a website belonging to a drag queen named Mrs T. Cross-dresser Paul Carroll saw the number of daily visitors to his website rocket from 500 to 10,000 when individuals mistakenly believed it to belong to the former British prime minister.

A renewed interest in Thatcher has emerged following the release of biopic The Iron Lady, which stars Meryl Streep as the infamous politician.

Carroll has now been forced to post a message on his website in an attempt to distance himself from the film and prevent similar technical failures.

“If you have come here seeking information on the new movie The Iron Lady, then we’re very sorry but we can’t help,” he wrote. “Our Mrs T has no connections with the other Mrs T I’m afraid. So please don’t send us emails asking if Lady Thatcher can attend your event because we won’t be able to respond.”                                   –DS
