Britich Chiropractic Associaton a.k.a sore losers

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on October 15, 2009

The British Chiropractic Association, BCA does not like the latest judge ruling giving Simon Singh the right to actually defend himself. The HORROR! So today they sent out a pathetic press release.They whine that the judge didn’t get to hear all sides of the story. No shit Sherlock! You were given an opportunity to lay out your side on the Guardian Newspaper and instead chose to try and intimidate Simon by suing him. Now pay the consequences!

They whine that Simon wants science writers to be able to write what they want free of consequences. Wrong losers! He wants to be able to tell the TRUTH and engage in open scientific debate,  without fearing a long, expensive, punitive libel law suit such as the one you choose to engage on. Now pay the consequences!

They whine that Simon Singh did not retract his article and apologize when given the chance! Why should he o’ troubled ones? He made a claim that is factually correct. You cannot, and you have not even when you pathetically tried, to prove scientifically that your claims are true. Instead you chose to sue, trying to sweep this mess under the rug. And Simon Singh was not intimidated, he took the fight to you and now you feel the rug being swept up from underneath your feet. Now pay the consequences!
The BCA would do well to be aware of the Streisand Effect or else they run the risk of learning first hand of the Dion Effect (sobbing uncontrollably and wishing you’d taken a different course of action!)

    C1.6 may publicise their practices or permit another person to do so consistent with the law and the guidance issued by the Advertising Standards Authority.

    I can see on your article that you support Simon Singh. I agree on what you said about everything. The BCA was not thinking what they are doing. The judge? He just wants to have the press attention by calling a press conference about that case. They shouldn’t do that.
