The door revolves…again

Joy unconfined at the news that the former chief medical officer (for England) has joined a global lobbying firm working in the private health industry.

Sir Liam Donaldson retired last year and now works for APCO Worldwide as a member of its “international advisory council”. The company’s UK healthcare clients include Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and the British Association of Pharmaceutical Wholesalers.

So another senior civil servant has slid into a comfy berth in an industry he was previously monitoring! Sir Liam will doubtless splutter that he had no thoughts of future employment when he was responsible for the nation’s health. But, honestly, how does he know about his own subconscious motivation??

While the new broom is out for the Murdoch empire, how about jamming it in this dodgy revolving door?

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
