The warning comes sugar-wrapped in soothing euphemisms. Drugs that have never been tested on children are been used on children in their millions. There is no proof that they do any good, the MHRA said. Neither is there any proof that they do not harm.
This is the beginning of a confession that the MHRA have been neglectful for decades in allowing untested drugs to used in their millions by infants.
Childhood infections are dealt with naturally by our human bodies with their array of subtle defences. They will clear up without drug interventions. The MHRA should have made clear that there is no a pill for every ill. But their paymasters would not have appreciated that.
Lazy Peoples' Peers
Under an FOI revelation to an Independent on Sunday journalist comes news of lazy peers.
Fourteen out of forty of the People's Peers miss 90% or more of votes in the House of Lords. The choice of the Peoples' Peers is as big a parliamentary farce as the Cones Hotline. The Committee that selected them was chaired by Lord Stevenson. He is one of the banksters that we have recently seen on television wriggling before the Treasury Committee. He was chairman of HSBOS when they lost £10 billion. He now doles out honours on behalf of the Queen.
His expertise in selecting new Lords was not influenced by his lack of contact with the place. When we cross-examined him om PASC last year, he has not made a speech in the Lords or asked a question since 2000. No wonder his choice of peers were all establishment people. Stevenson's committee reproduced itself.
Bad enough that the People's Peers are establishment figures. Worse that they are not doing their work.
