Walker-Smith Decision: Left-Brain-Right-Brain Brainless After All

While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. - 2 Peter Chapter 2, Verse 19

A British appeals court has quashed a large portion of the UK General Medical Council's ram-rodded decision to kick those who have issues with mass vaccination at all costs out of their club. The specifics of the appeals win tell on the tall tale tellers and tell more about those who insist a three in one, live virus vaccine loaded up with neurologically-active Measles, Mumps and Rubella is as wholesome as grandma's apple pie; they were there to simply plant a tall tale on vaccine researchers so that the British medical board could throw them out.

The Dr. John Walker-Smith decision by a British high court proves those willing to fight a malignant system of anti-litigationists versus the truth can actually win a battle.

Said the high court:
"the panel’s overall conclusion that Professor Walker-Smith was guilty of serious professional misconduct was flawed, in two respects: inadequate and superficial reasoning and, in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion. ...the medical records provide an equivocal answer to most of the questions which the panel had to decide...The GMC’s approach to the fundamental issues in the case led it to believe that that was not necessary...It had to decide what Professor Walker-Smith thought he was doing: if he believed he was undertaking research in the guise of clinical investigation and treatment, he deserved the finding that he had been guilty of serious professional misconduct and the sanction of erasure; if not, he did not, unless, perhaps, his actions fell outside the spectrum of that which would have been considered reasonable medical practice by an academic clinician. The end result is that the finding of serious professional misconduct and the sanction of erasure are both quashed."
While Walker-Smith is free to remain retired in peace, what is lost is the fact that in order to remove their heads from the chopping block, Wakefield and company were squeezed to the point that they are now not much more than a left-over fruit peel in the trash along side of coffee grounds and hollow egg shells. They were forced to re-characterize the Lancet paper. They now deny that they were the ones that stood in front of parents of sick kids and pointed to the MMR vaccine as causal in their child's illness.

In 2002, Dr. Andrew Wakefield had fearless vision and spine:

"We are in the midst of an international epidemic. Those responsible for investigating and dealing with this epidemic have failed. Among the reasons for this failure is the fact that they are faced with the prospect that they themselves may be responsible for the epidemic. Therefore, in their efforts to exonerate themselves they are an impediment to progress. I believe that public health officials know there is a problem; they are, however, willing to deny the problem and accept the loss of an unknown number of children on the basis that the success of public health policy - mandatory vaccination - by necessity involves sacrifice. Neither I, nor my colleagues subscribe to the belief that any child is expendable. History has encountered and dealt with such beliefs. You, the parent's and children, are the source of the inspiration and strength for our endeavours; our quest for truth through science - a science that is compassionate, uncompromising and uncompromised. I do not mean to stir you to mutiny, but be assured that armed with this science it is in your power to force this issue, in your pediatricians office, in Congress, in the Law Courts. Keep faith with your instincts - they have served you well." - Andy Wakefield, 2002

Years have passed. I guess we are supposed to have read between the lines and enlarged "may" as if to say he never said they were responsible?

Are we to suppose that it is Wakefield, the master medical thespian, the doctor drama king with his Kampf cleverly spread throughout the world and sometimes even above the fold, that has been the greatest impediment to progress?

So the the curtain is finally falling upon the British theater and our children are farther away from compensation then ever before. The doctors are being exonerated and the anti-litigationists are most pleased.
