Tin foil man talking like Metal Mickey would lighten mood

COMMENT: Bandstand event is a victim of its own success

Have your say

Iwas amazed and fascinated to read about the robot that operated on a patient at the QA Hospital. The all-singing all-dancing Da Vinci robot is worked by specially-trained consultants.

It’s minimally invasive, meaning surgeons can take a peek inside without making an incision. Patients also recover quicker.

They even filmed the procedure and will show it to other surgeons – probably more compelling than any content featuring Peter Andre.

As with all patients, it’s easy to become slightly nervous before an op.

But a man wrapped in tin foil, with a colander on his head, carrying scissors and a screwdriver and talking like Metal Mickey, would lighten the mood. Possibly.
