    Hello Margaret.

    I want to thank you for your well written and eloquent piece in the BMJ about the measles and MMR issue.

    I made a quick adhoc ramble about the issue on my site (http://adamroxby.co.uk/listen-to-the-scientists-my-thoughts-on-the-measles-outbreak)

    So I just wanted to thank you for what you are doing and how much I enjoy hearing you on the BBC.

    Well said. Mind you, I remember that at the time I rejected the furore after the Lancet article as just a routine medical health-scare beat-up, until our posturing, prevaricating PM of the day added his tuppence worth, leaving me (and many others) with the impression that one jab was all right for the children of the little people but that his precious prince would get three separate ones. Still, it’s pretty few deaths we can attribute to him over this issue compared to the many he brought about elsewhere in the world.
