This just in from the “foot in mouth” department.
The British Chiropractic Association has written a press release, or rather two in quick succession following yesterday’s ruling that Simon Singh has leave to appeal against the BCA’s libel case.
In the first release, they somewhat injudiciously accuse Singh of malice “…the BCA was maliciously attacked by Dr. Singh in the Guardian newspaper“. Subsequently, a revised press release was issued in which this sentence is amended to say that the BCA was libelled by Dr Singh.
The Lay Scientist has a nice summary of the latest…(Six Problems with the BCA’s Latest Statement on Singh). As ever, the redoubtable Jack of Kent is the best stop for legal analysis (BCA Now Alleging Malice By Simon Singh).
