John Crown is a highly respected oncologist here in Ireland.

He is also one of the chiefs of the Anti-Smoker movement, and is usually found to be behind our more ludicrous laws such as plain packs and banning smoking in cars.  I often wondered about his fanaticism as he doesn't seem to have any axe to grind apart from a religious zeal.

I see he got paid over €12,000 last year for "travel expenses" and "fees" by Pfizer.  That's nice.  That's a heck of a lot of bus fares?

Pfizer of course are at the forefront of the Anti-Smoker campaign here, producing such little gems as The Suicide Pill Chantix and running websites to encourage us all to take the pharmaceutical route to a non-smoking life.

Of course the more scurrilous of you will put two and two together and will jump to the conclusion that Crown is taking payoffs for his Anti-Smoker stance?

I couldn't believe that of such a nice man.

It's just pure coincidence.

Coincidence — 7 Comments

  1. Funny coincidence. Pfizer happens to have a seat on the Tobacco & Health Committee of the Scottish Parliament (toward the foot of the page on link).

    And yes Chantix is the default smoking cessation aid provided by the Scottish NHS.

    Heck if it looks like corruption and smells like corruption, then it is corruption. Especially in this myopic “devolved” parliament.

  2. The biggest secret of big pharma…..and why no-one tell the truth?
    Pfizer Chantix containing metoclopramide sparks and it is neurotoxic !! It is neuroleptic drug.

    Metoclopramide is very dangerous drug as you know. Pfizer has a patent and they do not tell the truth.
    Pfizer Chantix containing metoclopramide sparks ! People have been seriously injured and died around the world…..too many victims ! How can this be possible ??
    This is the biggest scandal ever. Who is responsible about all this ?…. someone need to tell the truth about poison Chantix ??

    Active ingredient: varenicline tartrate, patent names Chantixreg and Champixreg = metoclopramide.

    ….. thousands of victims?? How can this be possible?
