Libel and medicine: 2010 and 1862

In Uncategorized on Sunday 14th February, 2010 by Guy

The unjustness of the libel laws and the way they are administered in England and Wales (I admit to not being sure if the issue extends to the rest of Britain or the UK) is such that a very popular petition is being starting to be taken seriously.

Unfortunately that doesn't stop the ongoing nonsense, including this famed ongoing case with a medical researcher which I am not going to go into here.

But it's worth recalling that libel involving doctors isn't something new… and can even include such libellous concepts as "Vesico-vaginal and recto-vaginal fistula". If I had the time and patience I might have read the multi-page description of the case, but I'd rather you did that and then told me about it. Surely the knowledge that a pamphlet called "Vesico-vaginal and recto-vaginal fistula" is mentioned in the first paragraph should be enough to tempt you?
