Government virus expert paid £116k. The Swine flue scam unfolds!
A scientist who advises the Government on swine flu is a paid director of a drugs firm making hundreds of millions of pounds from the pandemic.
Professor Sir Roy Anderson sits on the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), a 20-strong task force drawing up the action plan for the virus.
Yet he also holds a £116,000-a-year post on the board of GlaxoSmithKline, the company selling swine flu vaccines and anti-virals to the NHS.
Sir Roy faced demands to step down yesterday amid claims that the jobs were incompatible. 'This is a clear conflict of interest and should be of great concern to taxpayers and government officials alike,' said Matthew Elliott of the TaxPayers' Alliance.
Is this proof that GlaxoSmithKline have bribed a lot of health officials to include those that work for WHO to hype H1N1. I feel to assume so could be 100% right. Its certainly strange that so much has been made out of a strain of flue thats weaker than the common variety.
Corruption of course reigns in this world of ours and many people will get away with this fiasco, but maybe they won't due to a needed public out cry?
