The one time I met Raj Persaud he was a bit too charming, but, other than that, he seemed to be just one more likeable self-promoter. I vaguely noticed the plagiarism charges against him and shrugged. He'd been stupidly sloppy but others do far worse and get away with it. Then, today, I realised it was a complaint from the Scientologists under the banner of The Citizens Commission on Human Rights - ha bloody ha - that landed him before the General Medical Council. I shrug no more. Raj is innocent. It's the aliens in the volcanos mob that should be in the dock.
