After the Storm–what have we learned? That Richard Brown has learned nothing .

I have got involved with a very interesting discussion on Linkedin  on the relevance of the subluxation to chiropractic. The discussion moved on to “chiropractors needs cultural authority” like the osteopaths in the US and this point of view was supported by an interview given by Richard Brown in the Austrialia  After the Storm...

Why should anyone believe what Professor Edzard Ernst says, after he put his name to a BBC programme, he now describes as “deception”.

Simon Singh was in Kingston on Monday night speaking to the Kingston Humanist Society. As all the skeptics I have challenged refuse to debate me in public, I thought I would go down and give a clinicians explanation of Evidence Based Medicine to a physics scientist. (more of that in my next blog post)...

Does Journalist James Delingpole have a point when he describes “the curious double standards of Simon Singh”?

  James Delingpole is a journalist who I believe appeared on Horizon a few days ago questioning whether Global Warming was being exaggerated. I disagree with his views but I have the same opinion I had with Simon Singh no matter how ill-informed his views are he is perfectly entitled to express them. Our...

Sooner or later the General Chiropractic Council will have to give the dogs a few bones.

The “Nightingale Collaboration” is up in arms because no charges were brought against pharmacists who recommended homeopathy as a protection against malaria. Having seen the Newsnight programme I would say they have a point. However what will be interesting is when they try to make the comparison with chiropractic and the evidence debate gets...

Highlights of this weeks ECU conference in London: David Byfield – how to make friends and influence Simon Singh

  David Byfield and I have never liked each other since he altered evidence against a BCA colleague for a GCC hearing in 2002. Thats him in in his grim reaper outfit with BCA president Richard Brown (well fed on GCC expenses) and former president Tony Metcalfe (butter would not melt in his mouth)....
