Re: Is freedom of opinion under attack?

Dear Editor

I share Mr Patrick Hudson (plastic surgeon) the concern about what Dr
Summerfield mentioned. If Scientific Societies, Medical Associations
& maybe Universities in UK are subjected to pressure to stop their
support to the Boycott Campaign in support of Human rights & Medical
Ethics, this would be really very worrying.

I support Mr Hudson's call for a public investigation to make this
matter clearer.

Hope this is not too much to ask for.
