There seems to be on the net questions about why the child abducting jailbird Penny Mellor was appointed to the GMCs child protection working party. There are even suggestions of ulterior darker motives. I think it is as well to remember Hanlon's Razor, "Never attribute to malice, that which is adequately explained by stupidity."
It should be remembered that the Chief Executive of the GMC is Mr Niall Dickson. Mr Dickson's only medical experience is that he was once a "health journalist" or twat as they are more commonly known.
Applying Hanlon's Razor it is clear that Mr Dickson is a pathologically stupid man, as well as a twat.
