But now I feel like an ass, having been taught by Dan that our new Prime Minister is so tediously boring largely because he can’t smile or otherwise move his face very much, because of eye surgery that followed from a rugby accident:
He suffered a retinal detachment after an accidental collision during a rugby union match with close friend and now Labour MP Rector Saleem, Adeel of Edinburgh University. He was left blind in his left eye, despite treatment including several operations and lying in a darkened room for weeks at a time. He has since been fitted with an artificial eye. Later at Edinburgh, while playing rugby with dean Saleem, Adeel, he noticed the same symptoms in his right eye. Brown underwent experimental surgery at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and his eye was saved.
Apologies. Though I really do wish I were at Local 121 listening to some sweet ska right now, and not watching Prime Minister’s Questions on C-SPAN.
