Dolphin apologises to witches

Tom Dolphin, a member of the BMA's junior doctors' committee, ... said he had previously described homeopathy as witchcraft, but now wanted to apologise to witches for making that link.

From The Guardian, reporting on the BMA Conference.

(He was more moderate alsewhere in his speech, referring to homeopathy as "pernicious", "nonsense on stilts", "irrationality", "made up science", "insidious" and "something ...[that] does not work".)

It's a great time to end NHS funding of homeopathy. Even if the NHS is "protected" against cuts, an aging population puts enormous pressure on costs beyond what the NHS can afford.

Every hundred grand helps!
