    nothing trivial i hope


    Lord Mandelson has been admitted to hospital to have an operation for a "benign condition of the prostate", a government spokesman has said.

    The business secretary, 55, is in St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London, and it is expected he will remain in overnight.

    A Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform spokesman said it was a "routine operation".

    Last week, Lord Mandelson stood in for the prime minister who was on holiday.

    Lord Mandelson returned to the British government last year after serving as European Union trade commissioner.

    He is known as the "comeback king" of British politics and was appointed to one of the most powerful jobs in Europe after being sacked twice from the cabinet.

  11. M.R.S.A - clostridium difficile - where are the super bugs when you need them?

    I suspect that this thread may be moved to the NAAFI before too long!

    PS: I was wondering, whilst he was 'under the knife', whose finger was on the, on the, the, you know - the nuclear button?

    PPS: No wonder Millyband sounded like a total twerp on the wireless this morning - 'Pretty Peter' was not there to tell him what to say!

    PPPS: Was this the offending gland?

  12. Wah!

    I think it would be simply AWFUL if the surgeon had an attack of the shakes and accidentally perforated his bowel in several places…

    I suspect they are just enlarging the entrance to accomodate all the new friends he made in Corfu.

    Or, if they are removing anything, it will be Tony Blair's head.
