Hang on, this is the 26th April isn't it? Bit late for this kind of joke?

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Well, its not the story that is the joke here then - as usual it's the media that is the clown! And those who trust them maybe . . .

Yet another good reason for not buying a "news"paper :D

The directive states that: “it is a general requirement…for production of all organic livestock that (herbal) and homeopathic products… shall be used in preference to chemically-synthesised conventional veterinary treatment or antibiotics.”
Yes, it would be nice if the appropriate directive was referenced, but why don't "Fact Check" reference it either? After all, they do say
homeopathic remedies are certainly promoted in EU organic food standards.

Thought I was unshockable when it comes to the homeopathy nutjobs...

Homosexuality is a sexual perversion caused by the miasms.

Nasty things them miasms
The word miasm means a cloud or fog in the being. The theory suggests that if 100% of all disease is miasmatic, then 85% is due to the primary and atavistic miasm Hahnemann called Psora. The remaining 15% of all disease he held to be either syphilitic or sycotic, being derived from suppressed Syphilis or suppressed Gonorrhoea. Hahnemann unlike Kent later attached no moral dimension whatsoever to the sexual nature of the two latter miasms. Kent of course, emphasised this a great deal. Which is hardly surprising in the somewhat Puritanical atmosphere of nineteenth century small town America.

Half listening to a comedy program on Radio 4Extra, someone said do you want a homeopathic cat? What's a homeopathic cat? It's just a glass of water.
Well, it seemed funny in my dozy state!

From todays' Times:

Witchtrial

Doctors have long had an uneasy relationship with homeopathy. Mark Porter, the British Medical Association chairman, recalls a debate in 2010 when one speaker irritably compared homeopathy to witchcraft. “We were inundated with complaints,” he said. “From witches.” Now the association, holding its annual conference, is to debate a motion holding that “homeopathic medicine would be more appropriately regulated by the Magic Circle than the General Medical Council”.

From the 'You couldn't make it up' pile: Homeopathy conference ends in chaos after delegates take hallucinogenic drug

Of course, instead of taking responsibility for this and investigating, the homeopathy/naturopathy/Heilpraktikers trade bodies seem to distancing themselves from these people.

I wonder just how much training the average phamacy assistant gets? In my experience not a lot, excepting prescription-only-medicines theycseem more influenced by shat oeople buy (quantity) rather than appopriateness. In this respect I have to give Tesco a thumbs-up, their pharmacy staff (in my local store ar least) are very careful to ask for details and refer to the pharmacist if there is any concern. The pharmacist will refer one to to one's GP for any medical advice.

Bit like the assistant in a hardware shop that was telling a customer that a 13A fuse was OK for an ekectric blanket, a case of poor basic training!

You might like to make your views on the blacklisting of homeopathy (which would prevent GPs from prescribing it) known to Liverpool CCG: it's a very simple survey form. Rest assured many homeopathy enthusiasts will have.
