Lunatic fails to take over asylum

Postby Brian Jordan » Thu Jun 18, 2015 3:12 pm

Well, actually, it's "astrologer-homoeopath fails to rule parliamentary health committee".
One MP who believes in alternative medicines lost in his bid to become chair of the health select committee. David Tredinnick, who champions the use of homeopathy and herbal remedies on the NHS, failed to depose his fellow Tory Dr Sarah Wollaston, who will keep the post for another five years.
That he ever attempted to gain that chair beggars belief. As it was, he got 64 out of 596 votes, so at least 10% of our MPs are detached from reality.
