Wakefield Sets the Record Straight

British law By Jim Moore and Andrew Wakefield

Dr. Andrew Wakefield filed a complaint on 13th March 2009 (HERE) alleging that Mr. Brian Deer falsely accused Dr Wakefield of committing scientific fraud in articles published on pages 1, 6, and 7 of the Sunday Times.  Dr Wakefield further alleges in this addendum that Mr. Deer failed to disclose in the Sunday Times articles material conflicts of interest with respect to his role in the GMC investigation and that Mr. Deer continues to mislead the public by denying his role in the GMC proceedings against Dr Wakefield and his colleagues. 

In particular, Mr. Deer falsely denied that he “did not lay the initial complaint [before the GMC] against Wakefield.”  , Further, Mr. Deer falsely claimed that GMC investigators initiated contact when they “approached” him asking if he had anything to substantiate allegations he had made in his original Sunday Times article in February 2004.   These subsequent denials have appeared in internet blogs and are relevant here because they corroborate his complete lack of candor about his own role in the GMC hearing, his undisclosed conflict of interest, and his lack of professional integrity.

look at this rude, uninformed principal commenting on an article about my family and saying we don't give "a rip about anyone else's kids" while quoting Brian Deer:

After looking at BD website, I come away with one main thought. He is on a witch hunt and not after the truth, he is after Dr Wakefield.

You're right Kathleen. There's a deep well of deceipt, censorship, and abuse of power underneath this whole problem and it takes time to take it all apart like Messrs Moore and Wakefield have done here. JB has described the "big, hungry lie" of the epidemic deniers and he is right: it is both voracious and shameless. Reading something like this is a project, but it is very important for all of us to do so that we both maintain our dedication and undertstand what we're up against..

We'll be spending more time with the GMC process here. Stay tuned.

Good grief what a read. That Brian Deer is a real piece of work the scab.
