Bob Piper is right to recommend alternative therapy to his political enemies. A homeopath offered me treatment for an unshakeable chest-infection a few years ago. He gave me a small bottle of water to hold in each hand, then he tried to prise each of them in turn out of my fists.
The one that was the hardest to wrest from me was - apparently - bound to be the appropriate cure.
Apparently hand-strength is largely a result of wrist-strength. I'm proud to say that my left hand put up the most resistance. I hope that silences a few of my critics.
