From the news wires…

A leak from the hospital that treated the former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher reveals that her recent operation was only a partial success. The procedure, which was officially described as a ‘bladder operation’, was actually an attempt at a pioneering form of spine transplant procedure.

The files report that the spine was successfully removed and a pattern taken before replacing the backbone into the former PM. However, attempts to coax a group of stem cells to replicate the spine for the benefit of an unnamed 46 year old patient failed.

The donee, referred to only by the initials “D.C.” has been informed that he will have to remain on the waiting list for a backbone – a indefinite period given the current lack of suitable donors apart from Lord Tebbit who everyone’s too scared to ask.
