From my Godmother...

"Your Christmas tree doesn't look as pretty as it did when I had cateracts..."

Iain - I am only commenting to procrastinate from getting on with what I should be getting on with! However, you spark a memory for me. My great aunt would always say at family dos 'what a good looking family we are'. She had cataracts in both eyes. Sadly (or happily) she died before the era of cataract removal!

Aww, at least if there had been a Tory government the NHS would still be in the same state as 97, if not worse, and you would be safe in the knowledge that the cataracts wouldn't be removed for another decade or so.

Do you know which Tory front bencher made snobbish(vote losing) remarks about the Speaker's Christmas tree, as reported by the Daily Mail ?

Or, at least if she was alive today during the NuLabour regime she would have been seen by a Cateracts Nurse Specialist and you'd be safe in the knowledge she would have ended up with a lobotomy ;)
