Is freedom of opinion under attack?
If Summerfield is truthful, this has become a question of freedom of
I want to know the facts.
In response to Tom Hickey's paper, I replied under the heading
or just rhetoric" - 24 July 2007. Has the problem of intimidation raised
at the RSM? I hope not, but it is time for a full and public
investigation by the
BMA and RSM.
When Sommerfield says the "RSM became subject to pressure from some
Israel doctors to remove me from the conference programme and went so far
to threaten a challenge to the RSM constitution ...". I ask
called, when did they call, what did they say etc.?
If it is shown that this happened, then appropriate censure is
needed. At this
point we have not had such an investigation and I call on organized
the UK to do so.
Let's put this matter to rest and get the facts, so nobody feels
expressing their opinion.
