    The battle over e-cigarettes - The Scotsman

    Brian Monteith: The battle over e-cigarettes - The Scotsman

    Public health prohibitionists take note: E-cigs will save more lives than your draconian laws, writes Brian Monteith

    Two years ago I wrote about how the British Medical Association – the doctors’ trade union – is so gripped by a self-serving politically correct agenda that it damages the important relationship between patient and doctor.

    The BMA’s over-the-top and outspoken histrionics continue to throw the profession into disrepute. I warned that its behaviour challenged the notion of “trust me, I’m a doctor” – to the point it would become as absurd as “trust me, I’m a politician”. The profession of doctor risks losing respect – not because of individual cases of malpractice or chicanery, but more akin to the behaviour of teachers’ unions and their willingness to strike, undermining the once universal respect that dominies were held in.

    Very encouraging signs are now starting to appear with greater frequency. I think the war can be won or lost through the media. But I don't think it can be won without them.

    Thanks for the article Rose.

    The tide has definitely started to turn in the media since the EU decision and its great to see the hypocrisy relating to e-cigarettes starting to be exposed.
