I have posted on paragraph 58 of the good practice guide before. “You must inform the GMC without delay if, anywhere in the world, you have accepted a caution, been charged with or found guilty of a criminal offence.”
The underlining is mine and illustrates the fact that you could be brought before the GMC for allegations of actions which are not even criminal offences in this country. This has got me thinking about what you might get done by the GMC for, if it suited them, under para 58, such as
Firstly, simply being homosexual, which is illegal in 70 countries.
Extramarital sex, illegal in the Maldives.
Chewing gum (Singapore)
Licking a toad (Los Angeles)
Having sex with a porcupine (Florida)
Throwing a moose from an aeroplane (Alaska)
Not wearing underwear. (Thailand)
Perhaps I should not go on. We don’t want to give the bastards ideas now do we.
