Blair's Back

The Prime Minister received treatment for back pain yesterday. The treatment was thought to be successful. The Times reports:
Andrew Platts, a consultant radiologist who treated the Prime Minister, indicated that he was unlikely to need further medical attention.
Dr Platts added: “The PM has been suffering from a slipped disc and has received treatment for this problem this evening. For the majority of people, this treatment is sufficient.”
Earlier in the day the Prime Minister's wife, Cherie Blair, said:
"I won't talk about his health but it's not a slipped disc."
"The Prime Minister and I are both receiving long term psychiatric counseling in an attempt to cure our mutual and pathological inability to tell the truth on even the simplest of matters" she did not go on to add.
