Wall Street Journal Talk

Well it seems to be kicking off with Sen. Grassley, the FDA and GlaxoSmithKline over in the States. Where our own regulator failed perhaps the United States regulator [FDA] will carry a thorough investigation and prosecute those responsible.

I'm fed up of the EU Law bullshit the MHRA have used as an excuse not to prosecute. I'm fed up of GlaxoSmithKline spokespersons [Including Garnier] claiming they have done nothing wrong - when they clearly have!

The upshot is Glenmullen found there was an 8 fold increase in suicide when taking Seroxat and Glaxo played this down with 'dirty' numbers.

I had a conversation with a reporter from the Wall Street Journal earlier, they was of the opinion that the MHRA had come down hard on GlaxoSmithKline. I have to disagree. Personally, they have basically clipped them around the ear and told them in future they can't manipulate results.

We are talking about human life here! This is not a speeding offence and a cop who is on his way home and can't be bothered to do the paperwork.

THEY DID WRONG and our regulator wrote them a letter!

They mass produced a tablet for the masses and they KNEW there was an 8 fold increase in suicide for anyone taking it... and they said nothing!

We can point the finger at individuals - the likes of Martin Keller, Alistair Benbow even Garnier but without those arrests the MHRA failed to make we are more or less back to square one - We are at the start of the MHRA's four year investigation again.

End of the day our own regulator wrapped the Glaxo suspects up in cotton wool and treated them with kid gloves mainly because mud sticks.

Hopefully Sen. Grassley will kick some 'ass' and demand answers from the FDA - answers that our own regulator [MHRA] have failed to supply us (for whatever perverse reason)

Sen. Grassly has my backing on this - as do the Wall Street Journal for reporting it. I will do everything in my power to guide them to various places around the Internet where documents have been in the public domain for many years.

Alas, I will not hold my breath as the FDA seems about as useful as a chocolate teapot... pretty much like our own regulator.
