Here's an article by Terry that was in the News of the World. Typically of the NOTW, they've posted a picture said to be Terry that clearly isn't. :roll:

But the article is worth reading nonetheless.

That picture made me laugh. I thought bloody hell, Terry's aged badly since I last saw him in May.

Hi,

You may have seen it already, but there's a similar article on the Daily Mail website.

I'm almost afraid to start typing, the whole NICE thing really winds me up. It seems like if you have something incurable, or if you're old or mentally ill, you get pushed way down the list of priorities. And what's this about Viagra? Maybe happy people are more productive workers.

(Sorry if I've offended anyone prescribed Viagra.) But if a person's worked all their life, maybe they should get a say in what drugs they can have.

Prescribe Viagra? I thought that Viagra is Sony's range of laptops.
