Headline

Panel endorses BMJ refusal to retract statins articles

Comment

'Independent panel'?!! conveyed by the Editor of BMJ herself and headed by her handpicked colleague and ex member of BMJ ethics cttee. A cttee which failed to publish open reports during her term on the ethics cttee as had been the policy previously.....and who who published many articles as her 'personal view' in the BMJ whilst president of the RCGPs. All a bit too cosy - an independent review needs to be seen to be independent as the Schloss fiasco showed recently ie she was appointed to head an investigation into child abuse when her own brother had been highly criticised for his involvement in a bungled review years ago. Lessons learned?.not yet - the boys and girls networks are still strong
