Thanks Sir G. Interesting article.

"When criticised by academics for the quality of its research methods, Poppy has reacted with disdain, claiming that its work should not be invalidated just because it does not fit into a specific model of academic virtue. Poppy is also accused of being excessively litigious, preferring to reach for the lawyer's letter to defend its results than argue the case in an open academic forum..... Given the dire consequences of getting legislation wrong in this area, perhaps a little humility on the government's part, and a pause to look at the evidence that is out there would be in order?"

Now there's a novelty- the words "humility" and "government" appearing in the same sentence. Dream on!
