    Interesting article on Aus' "Big Pharma"

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-11-2...nquiry/3686962

    I don't usually like linking to ABC news articles, but stumbled upon this today. Might give some insight into the power structure of big pharm in Australia.

    Thanks for the story BJ. Big Pharma has been busy again- why are we not surprised,
    Anywhere that free choice is being undermined and profit maximised, and its never about health.

    Remember what they said in the Godfather-"its not personal, its just business"

    Anyone want to bet that the Government's $15 billion deal with the Pharmacy Guild has a clause where the govt agrees not to allow any more competition into the market ie e-cigs, snus etc...

    depends if the bet is that it is written or just implied. Im sure its not actually written anywhere but it would be implied in the contract
