Quotes

...public figures, including novelists, scientists, broadcasters, campaigners, authors, including authors Sir Terry Pratchett and Philip Pullman said: "We object to his characterisation of Britain as a 'Christian country' and the negative consequences for politics and society that this engenders."
...seasoned Italian Vatican observer said of Francis’s decision to bump John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli before his elevation) to the front of the queue: "He wanted to make someone he really likes a saint." That rings true. They are popes out of the same box...
...Companies "may find themselves at risk of being sued where their products were prescribed by doctors in accordance with the new rules but where the treatment fails or causes additional problems for patients,” he warns. Mr Vaghela proposes that a new compensation fund, similar to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in the US and other similar schemes worldwide, should be created alongside the Bill. This “would give patients a less expensive and time-consuming means by which to claim redress that they would encounter if trying to sue drugs companies, and would reduce the threat those companies face of being held liable for the actions of doctors they have no control over,” he says. The government is expected to respond to the consultation in May, and it “will seek to legislate at the earliest opportunity, subject to the results of the consultation,” Mr Hunt has told Parliament."
...His wife, the novelist Josephine Hart, died of ovarian cancer in 2011 and he believes, in his own words, "that her death was a wasted death, indeed that all 165,000 cancer deaths in this country every year are wasted deaths because science advances not one centimeter as a result of them" . His bill aims to change that situation
