A Bit of Good News

Just a quick word. It was great to see the excellent James Landale back on our TV screens this week.

James has been off for a few months as he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma earlier this year and has undergone six courses of chemotherapy.

He wrote about his experience last month HERE.

He's one of the more popular journalists in Westminster and I think it is safe to say that everyone was delighted to see him back at work.

Is that Eddie off Bottom?

Hear hear. James is a top man. I can't see who else is going to be the next political editor of the BBC, either.

Good news - and welcome back James.

Also - I commend Iain's video on his homepage on the topic of Jack Jones.

Dick the Prick said...

Good man.

BJ - let's hope he gets better fast then as Toenail's is nearly Toynbee.

I like James. Sad to hear about his health probs. Hope he makes a swift recovery. Top dude, a True Brit!!

He also wrote a good book about duelling (called "Duel"), which is definitely worth a read. Hope he gets better quickly.

Just reading about Nick Boles, in the Indy, who withdrew from being a London mayoral candidate last year because of the same disease. He has now been selected as Tory candidate for Grantham and Stamford.Wish him well

Couldn't agree more

As someone who had the same strain (and freakishly similar timeframe) to his cancer, I agree with his comments on how much of a bugger NHL is. Also his comments on the Goody money-machine are very pertinent.

I agree entirely with what Iain says. Welcome back James.
