The Anonymous Widower

The Man who got Saddam Hussein to Give Up Smoking

Dr. William Frankland was yesterday appearing in a case as an expert witness, a day before his 100th birthday.

The case is reported in The Times today, that also says that in  1986 he was flown to Iraq to treat Saddam Hussein. Saddam listened to the good doctor’s advice and gave up his 60-a-day cigarette habit.

In some ways he feels guilty about it, as he believes without his advice, Saddam would have died naturally years ago.

Perhaps, Blair and Bush missed a trick here, by not reminding Saddam that he owed his life to a very good British doctor.

After all, all dictators are paranoid about their health.
