No need for me to say anything. Wakefield included the link to the court case and included parts of it in his letter! What a riot!

38. I have come to the conclusion, bearing all these considerations in mind, that the interests of the administration of justice require that the Channel 4 proceedings should not be stayed pending the outcome of the GMC proceedings. I appreciate that there will be an increased workload for the Claimant's advisers, but I do not have any reason to suppose that the firm is incapable of absorbing that extra burden. It is, after all, their client who chose to issue these proceedings and to use them, as I have described above, as a weapon in his attempts to close down discussion and debate over an important public issue.(I note that separate teams of counsel are instructed for the GMC proceedings and the defamation claims.)

And of course, no anti vaxxer site includes a reference link to the actual article in question! Wakefield needs no ones help to 'paint him in a negative light', a court already found him guilty!
No credible connection has ever been made between autism-related, and Wakefield's study certainly didn't show anything but fraud.
Seems Wakefield is running out of money and needs to sue someone. In one case, Mr. Wakefield dismissed his own lawsuit and was required to pay the legal fees for Mr. Deer. The Texas case was thrown out, after costing Wakefield a pretty penny off of the anti vaxxers who donated to the Wakefield Justice Fund website.

Pharma could care less about that has-been unemployed nobody. Wakefield did himself in, Pharma didn't need to aide him at all.

Pharma owns or uses media. James Murdoch used his Daddie's newspapers and TV stations and hired Brian Lyin Deer while he waqs on the board of GSK who made the MMR Wakefield was dealing with in the 12 children he and only he tried to help.
