Simon Singh and Free Speech

I haven't said anything really on the libel action taken by a bunch of frauds (the British Chiropractic Association) against somebody who dared to point out they were frauds (Simon Singh, author of Fermat's Last Theorem, The Code Book & Big Bang). Needless to say the case seems to have progressed to the stage where th chiropractors are on the back foot.

This is an interesting case that will hopefully highlight to the public that not all of those who claim to be able to heal you actually can. Unfortunately unless the British legal system protects the right of people to criticise alternative 'medicine' it may become harder for honest people to speak freely.
