Agenda

Andrew Wakefield the hero of the Anti-vaccine movement now stands discredited.
From Wikipedia

Wakefield’s hearing began in July 2007.[12] On January 28, 2010, the General Medical Council ruled that Wakefield “failed in his duties as a responsible consultant”, acted against the interests of his patients, and acted “dishonestly and irresponsibly” in his controversial research.[13][14][15]

Wakefield is currently the Executive Director[16] at the Thoughtful House, a centre for autistic children in Texas, where he earns a reported £175,000 (278,880 U.S. dollars) a year.[17]Wakefield does not have a medical license in the United States[18][19] and is currently unlicensed in the UK.[20]

On February 2, 2010, The Lancet retracted his 1998 publication, noting elements of the manuscript had been falsified.[21
