Over-Use of Viagra in Older Men Can Cause Blindness

Guido understands that Tracey’s unexpurgated diaries revealed a penchant for Viagra to put some led in the pencil when she was taking his dictation. (Old seaside postcard joke, but Guido feels it appropriate in this context).

Guido is concerned that the associated risks for 60somethings necking the blue pills were not understood by Prezza. Rapid vision loss within 24 hours can occur. The condition, known as nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), causes a rapid reduction of vision and can, in the most serious cases, lead to blindness. Clearly it led to Prescott being blind to the consequences.

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
