It's kidneys which are at stake!

It seems the Department of Health have just announced the appointment of a new "tsar". He is the "Renal Services Tsar". You'll note that even the even the Government has used inverted commas around the word tsar.

Perhaps they should start using a different name for autocratic dictator-style positions? Shah perhaps? Maybe Fuhrer? How about Caesar for Renal Services?

Great stuff! What about 'Warlord', or maybe 'Lord Protector'

I am quite happy with the word Tsar, to be perfectly honest, and dream of executing them and their progeny at the first opportunity.

Kidney Tsar is quite appropriate!
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanov

"The eldest, Nicholas, became Tsar upon his father's sudden death (due to kidney disease) at age 49."

Can we go for "The Glomerulus of Renal Services" ?

Or if Dr O'Donoghue leaves and a lady takes over, "The Nefertiti of Nephritic Services" ?
