Nearly forgot to mention in the last post, that all the time I was in hospital this week, Mark Latham who is the leader of the Australian Labour Party, was in a bed on the ward upstairs with an inflamed pancreas. Of course in what is supposed to be the "Phoney War" in the run up to the next general election, this was pretty big news and the media were encamped outside in case anything exciting happened. Mr Latham had chosen to go into a public ward, with his problem, so good on him... I'd vote for him if I could, just on that credential. Shame he wasn't on our ward though - would have been interesting to hear what in depth political analysis, he could have undertaken with Mickey.
