The Chairman of the UK drugs advisory panel has been sacked for stating the scientific truth.
Actually my title is misleading. There are thousands of scientists willing to speak the truth against the proven pre-defined political agenda of the IPCC. They just don't get coverage.Snips:
A prominent member of the government's drugs advisory panel has resigned in protest over the treatment of the committee's chairman Professor David Nutt
Dr King, who worked for the Forensic Science Service (FSS) for 30 years, has been associated with the drugs advisory panel for 15 years.
He was head of the Drugs Intelligence Unit for 10 years before his retirement from FSS in 2001, when he became a co-opted member of the Home Office advisory panel.
Dr King, who became a full member last year, said the Government's attitude to the panel has been shifting in recent years and home secretaries now had a ''pre-defined political agenda'' when they asked for its expert advice.
''It's being asked to rubber stamp a pre-determined position,'' he said.
"I think it shows a rather poor understanding of the value of science."
