Futile gesture

Psychiatrist Dr Peter Rowan, who is 62, has recently been struck off by the GMC, principally (but not exclusively) for accepting the sum of £1.2 million from a deceased patient. Looking at the inheritance in isolation I was not aware that accepting money left in patients' wills was an offense. I can't see it ever happening to me but I am sure I am not the only person who would be tempted to cash the cheque.

If I were past retirement age, and with £1.2 million in the bank, acquired perfectly legally, why would I give a stuff what those tossers at GMC think or do.
