Non-Vegetable Curry

‘SUCH is Tony Blair’s U-turn on the Euro-referendum that we medical types fear for his state of mind.

Just what the doctor ordered

Might it be that Tony is less the opportunistic operator, the grinning salesman who moves only when it is expedient to do so, and more the victim of some loss of mind?

So, in the spirit of healing, we direct the PM’s shiny-eyed gaze to the Times’ front page and the paper’s story on how curry keeps Alzheimer’s at bay.

Research by scientists in America and Italy has found that curcumin, a chemical compound found in turmeric, a key ingredient in curry, can defend the brain from neurodegenerative disease.

Scientists in Rusholme and Brick Lane will be conducting their own investigations into the benefits of a good blow-out very soon.

And Anorak will be hosting a similar study at the Raj Poot tonight to see if the right combination of cumin and lager can protect against other illness.

Although, thanks to the sterling work of medical marvel Earnest Saunders, we already know that the Alzheimer-busting powers of a Guinness are hard to beat.’
