We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital Dialysis Unit. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..? http://justgiving.com/shanenaz

Simon Singh wins libel appeal


Simon Singh has won his appeal for the right to a "fair comment" defence in his libel trial:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8598472.stm

This is FANTASTIC news, as the previous ruling would have grossly prejudiced the case, and made it impossible to defend.

This is a victory not just for Simon Singh, but for free speech, the ordinary person, science, medicine and democracy itself.

The game is not over yet - unless the British Chiropractic Association back down (hint: if they know what's good for them, they will), this will proceed to court for a full trial.

Which they may lose.

And if there is any justice left (and this appeal seems to suggest there may well be), they will lose. Heavily. And they deserve to.

He may have a really bad haircut, but Simon Singh is a HERO!
