It’s reported that the British Chiropractic Association have admitted defeat in their ill-fated and stupid attempt to silence criticism (Ely Place – News).  I wonder where this leaves Simon Singh who, as I understand it, is a couple of hundred thousand pounds out of pocket for defending himself against a libel action that should never have been brought.  Can the BCA get off the hook as easily as that?

UPDATE:  The original article is back on the Grauniad website.  The BCA have commented with a press release.
