Vince Cable recovering after surgery for appendicitis

Maybe it's because I have been away for a couple of days and am off the pace, but I have not seen this story widely covered.

From the Hounslow Chronicle:

Twickenham MP Vincent Cable was recovering at home this week after being rushed to hospital in Westminster for emergency surgery.

Dr Cable, 66, who is also deputy leader of the Lib Dems, collapsed on June 3 and was taken to St Thomas' Hospital with suspected food poisoning, which turned out to be appendicitis.

We wish Vince Cable a swift recovery.

The first deck of the headline on the Daily Mirror report - "Liberal Democrat Vince" - made him sound like a well-known blog.
