Freedom of expression or lack of it
Doctors.net.uk (DNUK) is a website that doctors use for email and forum banter; Carol Black, a medico political stooge with umpteen committee positions, had recently been reelected unopposed into her position as chair of the Academy of the Medical Royal Colleges.
Given that the catastrophic failings of various recent reforms of medical training had resulted in so much suffering for so many junior doctors and their families, most doctors are not best pleased that no one has yet been held to account for these negligent reforms and that the same muppets are still manning the ship.
One doctor happened to express his dissatisfaction with events by posting some rather colourful comments concerning Carol Black's re-election. This doctor lives and works in Scotland, but strangely a key figure behind the government's reforms, a lady called Prof Elisabeth Paice, happened to be reading his words on this private DNUK forum and she reported these comments directly to one of her chums in the Highland Deanery. The doctor was then immediately suspended despite the fact that the comments were withdrawn from the forum rather rapidly.
The abuse of power that has occurred here seems to typify the way in which the filth who rule us 'govern' this country. Pulse has spoken to Prof Paice who tried to defend her position by claiming that she felt compelled to complain directly to this doctor's Dean due to the ‘excrementous and scatological’ language used. Personally I don't see why the withdrawal of the comment and a quick personal apology should not suffice.
Dr Rant has a typically mild mannered take on events. Dr Rant is fucking spot on:
(Fucking 'compelled'? Fucking 'COMPELLED'! What? Did you
think the poor bastard was fucking mentally unwell because he called your pal a
shit? I'll give you fucking 'mental illness'! Do his 'scatological' comments
seem a bit fucking tame now in retrospect? Do they? Well, fucking do they, you
stupid fucking tautological power-abusing bint?)
