That’s bad. Even Meryl Dorey attempted a notpology for that one.
A long time has passed. That was almost a year ago. Since then Meryl Dorey has been writing a lot of things about a lot of people, and how abusive these people can be, and how it’s time for respect to come back into things (she’s not alluding to herself, here: in her own eyes, and by her own deeds, Dorey has never attacked anyone; nor has she ever been abusive).
So, we give you Meryl Dorey Version 2012: all respect; no abuse; no rape allegories for Meryl any more. Right?
we are being told to trust our doctors and – even more shocking – to trust the drug companies! That is like telling a hen to trust the fox or a 5 year old to trust a paedophile.
I, for one, have no idea what is going on inside the head of Meryl Dorey. Frankly, I don’t care. But, when this hypocrite wants to bleat to the world about how nasty and abusive the vaccine debate has become; and bloggers want to give her the benefit of the doubt; and hand-wringers want to uphold the ideal that Meryl Dorey is due respect; then, excuse me while I go and stand over here now.
