i mean, really...

WorraLiberty Tue 21-Aug-12 00:09:11

Then don't read about it

Plenty of other people do want to know about his health

VivaLeBeaver Tue 21-Aug-12 00:09:35

In fairness he probably doesn't want us all to know about it. grin

Poor bloke, having his medical details splashed over the news.

firemansamisnormansdad Tue 21-Aug-12 00:11:01

I'm not reading about it. It's being shouted to me from the telly.

SoleSource Tue 21-Aug-12 00:12:45

What is It like, to want?

WorraLiberty Tue 21-Aug-12 00:15:07

Then switch it off

MyThumbsHaveGoneWeird Tue 21-Aug-12 00:15:54

YANBU
Poor man, totally unnecessary to share his medical information.

HappyAsChips Tue 21-Aug-12 00:17:37

Change the channel.

HAHA Phil the greek> born on a kitchen table ,i cannot work out why you even notice ? he is a total fuckwit!! him and GEORGE GALLOWWAY !!!!

I reckon that he is just as pissed off as we are with it, and doesn't see it as newsworthy. Its the press wanting him to die so they have a story, its gone quiet since the Olympics.

pigletmania Tue 21-Aug-12 07:32:22

YANBU at all. How can you change the Chanel your watching the news and suddenly this comes on, too late you've heard it now

fanjoforthemammaries Tue 21-Aug-12 07:36:10

It's probably worse for him being ill in hospital than it is for you to read about it, tbh

limitedperiodonly Tue 21-Aug-12 07:40:35

To be fair other people get this kind of attention too.

Soon we'll be speculating about Margaret Thatcher's mental state again. It's taken over from the papers' fascination with the affliction turning her hand into a withered claw.

People who were alive back then told me that the Daily Mirror used to run regular stories for a year up till his death demanding that a frail Winston Churchill be wheeled out for the gaiety of the nation.

Then we all came together with a lovely State funeral.

I dont think people realise how ill a bladder infection can make an old man.
Its not just a bit sore and he needs to wee a lot you know.

My Granny was hospitalised for several weeks with hers and died with it as a contributing factor.

YABVU he is a sick old man who lots of us think fondly of.

EdithWeston Tue 21-Aug-12 08:05:05

It just shows how little privacy the poor old chap as, that he cannot even be ill in peace.

I think the level of coverage was excessive, and that their private lives should be left alone. A brief mention of the official health bulletin is all that is needed.

Though, donning hard hat, the other thing I'd like to see is fewer threads about this here. This is the third one: after this one and this one.

MrsRobertDuvallHasRosacea Tue 21-Aug-12 09:07:03

Poor man...I bet he is highly relieved he hasn't got haemorroids.

Mrsjay Tue 21-Aug-12 09:15:49

In fairness he probably doesn't want us all to know about it

^ ^ this, poor man doesn't want his pee problems all over the 6 oclock news every night I wish they would stop saying bladder infection and standing infront of the hospital reporting give the man some privacy

PeshwariNaan Tue 21-Aug-12 09:30:21

Shocking that Channel 4 posts someone reporting from the hospital every night. (we've been calling it Bladderwatch 2012...) Bunch of greedy vultures waiting for a death - leave the poor old bloke alone!!

Mrsjay Tue 21-Aug-12 09:31:49

The Beeb has been no better aberdeen royal must have a line of tv vans parked outside ,

firemansamisnormansdad Tue 21-Aug-12 19:43:51

The 62 million dollar question: does THE QUEEN want us to know about his bladder infection? We'll be learning anout Charles' ear wax build up next.

Mrsjay Tue 21-Aug-12 19:50:36

I read he has been discharged so hopefully the auld fella can pee in peace now hmm
