Simon Singh no longer writing for The Guardian

Simon Singh is one of my (very few) heroes. He is a journalist who has been fighting not just the British Chiropractic Association (who is suing Simon for libel) but also the awful UK libel laws themselves. You can catch up with all this here. The fight is actually going well on both fronts, but, sadly, it's claimed Simon as a victim: it's eating up so much of his time that he can no longer write his monthly column for The Guardian. This is a shame. He's a great writer and a voice that definitely needs to be heard. He fights the quacks, the antireality brigade, the poor thinkers, and the out-and-out frauds that occupy every crevice of medical altmeddery. Still, he is pushing for libel reform, and I know his voice overall will not be silenced. Nor will ours. Give your support for libel reform, and make sure the forces of darkness don't win.

Tip o' the subluxation to Tony Piro.
