Panorama interactive forums – watch here

I’ve just been prompted by an email from a friend to post up these links to three Panorama interactive web forums that took place after broadcasts of the Seroxat programmes.

They’re worth watching to see our good friend Alastair Benbow in full flow defending Seroxat as only he can… you also get to see Charles Medawar, David Healy and Andrew Herxheimer.

    Check out the end of this program…
    It is worth watching purely for Alastair Benbows Final words which ends the discussion in the closing minutes..

    When Asked By ( pharmacology expert) Dr Herxamer about why GSK have given no warning about the severe reactions from Seroxat despite knowing about it for 5 years…

    Mr Benbow replies… ( and stumbles with )

    “Seroxat has provided countless benefit to many people and enabled them to do more, live longer and feel better… and i think that speaks for itself…”

    It sure does…( doesn’t quite answer the question though does it? )

    … priceless…

    More like.. do less, die youger and feel worse…

    Talk about a spin doctor…

    ( I feel a ribena puke fest coming on )

    Benbow answered the question with Glaxo’s corporate strapline – search this phrase in Google “do more feel better and live longer” and you get 17,200,000 results… the TOP one being…
    “GSK.com is the corporate web site of GlaxoSmithKline, a leading healthcare company that helps people to do more, feel better and live longer.”

    I’m lost for words.
