VROOM! VROOM! Glaxo Team Up With Formula 1 Aces McLaren
GlaxoSmithKline have proudly announced on their webpage that it has formed a long term strategic partnership with McLaren Group.
Formula 1 racing enthusiasts can now stay awake watching cars go round and round with one of Glaxo's products.
It baffles me why a prestigious British company [McLaren] would want to team up with a company who have such a tainted history and disregard of children and consumers who take their prescription medication.
If McLaren had done their homework they would have learned about GSK's suppression of information in clinical trials, information regarding their diabetes drug Avandia and antidepressant Paxil [Known as Seroxat in the UK]
By teaming up with GlaxoSmithKline it would appear that McLaren are sticking their fingers up to patients who have suffered severe withdrawal at the hands of Glaxo's Paxil, giving the middle finger to those children born with serious heart defects because of Glaxo's Paxil. [See Kilker v GSK] Maybe McLaren are sticking their fingers in their ears and covering their eyes at Glaxo's suppression of information regarding their product Avandia too? Where Glaxo, once again, withheld important safety information from those taking it. Safety information along the lines of "Avandia can cause heart attacks and strokes." Check the report by the Senate Finance Committee, who accused GlaxoSmithKline of knowing about the drug's risks well before they became public.
I could point to the evasion of tax Glaxo have been accused of in the past too [they settled those particular accusations out of court] I'm sure McLaren's legal team would know all about those though, if they don't then one has to ask why, if they do, then they don't mind being associated with the alleged criminal activities of their new partners..
Way to go McLaren!
I look forward to your racing vehicles going round and round emblazoned with the GSK logo...and more than likely one of their products. I can just see it, substitute Marlboro Cigarettes for Glaxo's Zyban.
Enjoy the videos.
