    My latest letter to Archives of Disease in Childhood

    I sent the following e-mail today to Dr Nick Brown, the editor-in-chief of Archives of Disease in Childhood, the journal that published the Lightning Process study a year ago. I cc’d Dr Fiona Godlee, editorial director of BMJ, which publishes Archives.

    Excellent, thank you @dave30th. I'm glad you have spelled out the just what awful 'woo woo' LP is and what a charlatan Phil Parker is and the harm this published paper is doing to vulnerable children. Let's hope your letter has some effect this time.

    well they published the comment a while ago--they know that the study is a sham. It just depends on what they plan to do. I think they're waiting till climate change wipes us out and they won't have to do anything.

    Thank you for your persistence. I think they are secretly hoping that you give up.

    Same here. If these people don't act in the best interests of patients, there's less than no point in them.

    This is the UK.
    Generally it seems that if there is a cock up / scandal that we wait until either people are dead, or no longer practising ( retired) before any actions are taken.

    You only have to refer to recent paedophile scandals and the current very slow progress of the contaminated blood inquiry to get a feel for how this stuff generally pans out.

    All the haemophiliacs in the UK who got AIDS and Hep C from blood products even after it was known there might be a problem.

    Are children not worth the inconvenience of admitting an error?

    There seem to be some people for whom nothing and no one is worth as much as their own skins.

    Cost and effort over ethics, that is clear. Brown's note made it clear he couldn't even be bothered.

    Wow, they're just investigating that now? I mean, many wars have been fought and lost since then. It's not like it was a secret in the '80s that that happened.

    In cricket which is a game game played over 5 days there was a well known England batsman who was particularly known for his defensive batting where he would stand his ground protecting himself from being bowled out but scoring at a very low run rate. This defensive batting strategy is a very apt metaphor for the behaviour of the establishment who believe that if they just keep playing defensive shots they will ultimately grind down the opponent. However I see @dave30th as a spin bowler who will be equally dogged and ultimately bowl them out.
