The winner of today’s caption contest gets themselves a copy of Lord Tebbit’s brand new book “Ben’s Story“.
It is about a radioactive telekinetic Russian dog. Really.

Today has been a long time coming for many co-conspirators, a day we feared we would never see. Fortunately Norman Tebbit’s serious poor health this year has not stopped him becoming 83 years young today. Happy Birthday Norman!
It went little reported and those who are not readers of Norman Tebbit’s blog may have missed this pre-Christmas:
In the small hours of Friday morning I was awakened by severe pains in my chest. I slipped out of bed and went to call my wife’s carer for help. She dialled 999 and very quickly an ambulance arrive at the front door, I was carried out and whisked off to A&E. It was mercifully quiet and I was rapidly admitted to the cardiac unit which had already been advised that I had a heart rate of up to 200. Well-qualified staff were on duty, and dealt with what was a most unwelcome and extreme return of a problem for which I had been treated in London over a decade earlier.
Tebbit plays it down on his blog, however at the time friends were, and still are, extremely worried. Guido wishes him well…
