Many thanks to Dr Aubrey Blumsohn for notifying me of the latest developments in this case, and for giving me the link to his site. The latest news can be found here.
The General Medical Council is apparently afraid to allow scientific debate or to allow doctors to hold any opinions not endorsed by them, even if there is adequate impartial scientific data to back up that doctor's individual opinion.
Most of the medical pioneers of the last four hundred years would most definitely have been struck off by the GMC for daring to differ with their entrenched and hallowed views.........what a good thing hindsight has 20-20 vision :-)
Britain under Princess Tony has become a Nanny state, and of course, Nanny knows best.
Anyone who disagrees with Nanny is either
A/ Very Naughty
B/ A Deliberate Rabble-rouser
C/ Probably Incredibly Stupid and Needs To Be Taught A Lesson.
There no longer seems to be any room at all for logical analytical thinking or the possibility that people should be allowed to have an alternative point of view to Nanny, even if they may be misguided.
The medical profession is quite possibly one of the worst for this. It demands absolute obedience to the offical party line of the General Medical Council.
Just in case you were in any doubt whatsoever that Britain is turning into an Orwell-esque Thought dictatorship, check this out:-
"A doctor who has spoken of the possible dangers of children receiving the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and other vaccinations has been charged with serious professional misconduct by the General Medical Council.
Dr Jayne Donegan, 47, is being disciplined over her decision to give expert court testimony on the issue. Her situation echoes the plight of Dr Andrew Wakefield, the gastro-enterologist forced to resign after his evidence linking the MMR jab to autism in children angered the government, drug industry and medical establishment.
Dr Donegan's disciplinary action, which could result in her being struck off, stems from legal action in 2002 by two mothers opposed to the MMR jab. Her evidence was later described by a judge as "junk science".
Dr Donegan, a London GP, said she was charged with serious professional misconduct in July 2004. "Since then, I have heard nothing and I am still waiting to hear exactly what it is that I am meant to have done wrong." "

I am shaking my head in despair, folks. Just waiting for XYZ (insert any medical procedure/dietary regime etc of your choice here) to be made compulsory in this country.
It will come, believe me, if the Labour Party stay in power.
Their belief that they know what is best for absolutely everyone, no matter what the circumstances, is really frightening.
