London - (Raving Bonkers Mess): Three former Royal Freak Hospital quacks are up before the General Medical Council today defending their autism and legal aid gravy train scam.
Dr Andrew Wakefield, Prof Simon Murch and Prof John Walker-Smith are charged with bringing the profession into disrepute.
The GMC disciplinary committee says they published highly spurious research into get-rich-quick legal fee schemes that bypass time-honored medical procedure traditions.
Wakefield, 69, famously claimed no conflict of interest in getting paid for expert advice to lawyers representing litigants suing the triple vaccine's manufacturers.
Several months of medical foraging in sick children's guts 'and other hard to access places' produced his blockbuster theory that saw the MMR jab relegated to noxious poisons category following a national wave of hysteria.
His GMC litigation costs are being sponsored by members of the Flat Earth Society.
