    BBC News - Ian Tomlinson pathologist Dr Freddy Patel struck off

    Apologies if this verdict has been covered elsewhere - I expect so.

    ( in-depth piece on BBC Radio 4 Today programme this morning revealed a catalogue of odd interpretations produced over the past twenty years by the eminent clinician in question...first, do no harm my arrse....I will post a link when IT biffism permits..)
  2. The government's go-to man if you ever want the "right" answer... like Lord Hutton.

    A "sound man", as Sir Humphrey would call him.

  3. Establishment burying the bodies.
  4. Bugger. Who will I call next time my tramp tipping goes south?
  5. You'd think he'd be safe enough as a pathologist, I mean most doctors bury their mistakes, for a pathologist a burial is a result!

    University of Zambia, mmmmmhhhh, overqualified I'd say.
  6. You couldn't make it up. Or could you?

    Those with a (very) long memory for comedy might remember an item on Chris Morris and Armando Ianuchi's Radio 4 series On the Hour from the 1990s, that featured an investigation into the work of forensic scientist Dr Freddie Vincent: "he's not really a doctor, but who are we to discourage him?"

  8. Try the same one you called last time. You know the one ? He advised you to fly west.

    The Radio 4 short item on this can be found at BBC Radio 4 - Today, 06/09/2012 for the next 6 days...cautionary tale and worth a listen, as George michael might say 'Without Prejudice'...

    The medico-legal eagles will be licking their lips already...Lamborghinis all round!
  10. No, he told me to go east and I fell asleep on the way round and ending up here.
  11. Absolutely unbelievable.

  13. It is absolutely unbelievable how he got away with everything for so long.
