Cobbled-together protest letter from relative of Labour’s Anas Sarwar still on BBC website 4 days after debunking

This report of ‘coronavirus medics’ having to make their own PPE is based on a single source, Labour MSP Anas Sarwar’s brother-in-law, unsupported by the BMA or by any of the royal colleges and flatly contradicted by the Health Secretary days ago, yet it’s still there infecting the public sphere. Here’s the debunking:

The BMA IS accusing NHS England of putting doctors’ lives at risk but their target is Matt Hancock and there is no mention of Scotland in this long BBC UK report.

  1. Took the published list of ‘signatures’ and put them into Excel then reorder the names alphabetically to see hundreds of single-name (anonymous?) & a huge number of duplication of names … strangely duplicate names are displayed randomly in the published list – almost as if they’ve been deliberately mixed around to hide that many of the ‘signatures’ are bogus ….

    1. Hi Alan,

      Do you have a link to this ‘published list’ you can share?

      Indeed do you have a link to the actual text of the ‘open letter’? So many places I look for it use something like this form of words: ‘The letter is reported to say ..”

      Beginning to wonder how many journalists in the newspapers reporting the story have actually seen a copy the document!

      Thanks
