    Default Welcome to the Club

    I'd like to be the first to welcome the Duke of Edinburgh to the Noble Order of Stentees

    I am however a little bit curious as to why Buck House are using such a wordy phrase as "a blocked coronary artery"? There are existing phrases to describe this condition: those of a medical bent would say "myocardial infarction" whilst some might prefer the more homely phrase "heart attack".

    If I was of a cynical bent, I might imagine that they are trying to downplay the seriousness of his condition.

    Still, now he's a fellow stentee, we'll have something to chat about next time we're stuck at Birmingham New Street. If he's anything like me he'll be home for Christmas. If he's extremely like me he'll then have to pop down the road to the Co-op to get some spuds.

    In fact, of all the technological benefits of living in the twenty-first century, the one I like the most is being able to have a heart attack (or myocardial infarction, or blocked coronary artery if you're a bit royal) and then be going down the shop for spuds less than two days after dialling 999

    So good luck to the irascible old sod, and I hope the Sandringham village shop is open on Sunday or Liz'll give him hell when there's no roast spuds for dinner.

    The Duke of Edinburgh is no more than an unemployed foreign emigrant living off state benefits, now he wants private medical treatment paid for by the tax payers.
