Syringe Benefit

I see from the logs that the General Medical Council took a few minutes out of their busy schedule to visit these humble pages earlier today. Welcome along guys!

And, in celebration of your esteemed interest, I have good news for you! Until today, the GMC was obviously out of its depth in addressing the issue of doctors who are also suspected terrorists. Spotting the potential terrorists before they become UK doctors, and swatting the UK doctors when they become potential terrorists is obviously far beyond your capabilities, and it seemed as though your involvement in this whole sorry affair was going to be as that of a chocolate teapot.

But take heart! Today, the Telegraph and the Daily Mail report that the suspected terrorists used syringes, possibly liberated from the NHS, as part of the detonators in their bombs. What joy the GMC must now be feeling - here, at last, is a part of the investigation that they can really sink their teeth into.

Forget car bombs, nails, propane and mobile phones - all that stuff is for folks who can handle it. But theft of NHS property, to wit, syringes, must surely be a striking off offence. Go to it guys, and enjoy your opportunity for relevance - it may not come your way again.
