Who has broken the code?

According to the Code of Practice for Scientific Advisory Committees:

“Rules of conduct need not affect a member’s freedom to represent his or her field of expertise in a personal capacity. The committee's rules however should generally oblige members to make clear when they are not speaking in their capacity as committee members."

Hero to Zero?

Well, that's pretty clear, isn't it (the code of practice).

What intrigues me is that the Nutt story was pretty much the lead story on the Today programme yesterday (including the coveted ten past eight slot). This morning it was conspicuous by its absence.

I smell lawyers and injunctions at work...
