Because, hey, this day wasn't quite frustrating enough:
Baroness Thatcher is recovering in hospital after undergoing surgery to remove a growth on her bladder.
The former Prime Minister is "absolutely fine" after the minor operation, a spokeswoman said.
The 87-year-old was admitted to hospital on Wednesday after complaining of pains. She is expected to remain there while she recovers.

Fortunately, it only sounded like a minor health problem, but there are no minor health problems when you're 87. Our prayers and good wishes for the former Prime Minister.
