PLAYFULLY COMBATIVE - MARCH 22 - 3.10pm

But since you really can’t just leave it there, let’s add - effusive, cutting, controversial, breathless, furious, impish and ‘ouch’.
Best known for his book ‘Bad Science’ which gleefully derides many of medicine’s most sacred cows, he was on top form today, shooting from the hip and lapping up its effect.
Smart, funny and admirably unconcerned, this was a perfect antidote to a rather bland, grim and grey afternoon and improved my circulation no end.
