The hypocrisy of the British Medical Association's contrasting pay policy for staff and doctors is no surprise, writes Joyce Robins

Any organisation advocating presumed consent to organ donation while opposing presumed consent for the creation of electronic patient records has lost its moral compass and the right to be taken seriously.

If its own staff, in daily contact with elected officials, are so disaffected, imagine what patients, the public and government think of the BMA. The level of respect for the NUM under Arthur Scargill comes to mind.
