The resurrection of the Woo-Woo Wibblers

witchround

Do you remember two summers ago, when The Oldest Sage Witch developed a strange crush on Pyjama Man?

Do you remember, My Black Cat, how she thought it was a bit odd that Pyjama Man was so ahead of everyone else with his IWantGreatCare feedback?

Do you remember how she wondered whether Pyjama Man was a Woo-Woo Wibbler?

Here is what The Oldest Sage Witch said then in July 2008, My Black Cat….

IS PROFESSOR CHRIS BULSTRODE A WOO-WOO WIBBLER?

Orthopaedic surgeons are strong.

They wield hatchets and saws, albeit in a sterile environment.

They are the hard men of medicine.

The thugs.

All thugs – except the ones that do fiddly things with fingers and thumbs.

It’s not surprising, therefore, to hear an orthopedic surgeon say something out of turn that causes offence to their peers and fellow professionals.

They can’t help it.

Something like:

‘This website is a great idea and will put the cat among the pigeons with the medical profession, which is just what’s needed. Doctors will feel threatened, and rightly, as one or two will find their trousers round their ankles.’

Now, if you accept this analysis, you would not expect an orthopaedic surgeon to show much enthusiasm for Reiki, and aromatherapy and other magic things.

It doesn’t fit.

What a surprise, therefore, to find that Professor Chris Bulstrode was keen to offer his services as the GMC representative on the Education and Training Group of the Prince of Wales’s Foundation for Integrated Health.

A grumpy scientist, Dr Aust, has very definite views on woo and perhaps also Woo-Woo Wibblers?

“A third question is where and when these ideas came to be so linked with the notion that embracing Woo is “empowering”, and is a statement of one’s freedom from corporate consumerism – something that is manifestly untrue, since Woo is a multi-billion dollar business, and is increasingly of interest to large companies.”

Just thought I’d share my witching hour thoughts with you.

I don’t suppose you can work out where the map of my mind is taking me.

Since I’m not too sure myself……

Just random, disconnected, witching hour thoughts, I suppose.”

The link above to the appropriate GMC page has disappeared.

(My Black Cat always chuckles when links we have put up disappear into a black hole.!)

However, if you fiddle around enough the evidence can be found. This is what it says:

From the GMC Chief Executive Report July 2004:

“The Prince of Wales’s Foundation for Integrated Health seeks GMC representation on its Education and Training Group. Members of the Education Committee have been asked to express interest in this role and Professor Chris Bulstrode has put himself forward. Professor Peter Rubin therefore proposes that he be nominated.

Recommendation: To nominate Professor Chris Bulstrode for appointment to the Education and Training Group of the Prince of Wale’s Foundation for Integrated Health.”

Do you remember how perplexed we were that the GMC should feel any obligation at all to associate themselves with Woo-Woo Wibblers?

Now, a puzzle for you.

If you are interested in strong Intertwinglements, you will find one if you click either on the link above or here.

You will need to be very, very quick because this link will probably disappear into a Black Hole anytime now.

Why?

Because The Prince’s Foundation for Integrated Health no longer exists.

Why?

There was a bit of a scandal involving money last year.

Instead, there is another Woo-Woo Wibbler outfit being born at this very moment.

It is NOT called The Royal College of Physicians NOR The Royal College of Surgeons.

And it is NOT called The Royal College of Medicine.

No.

It is called The College of Medicine. No “Royal.”

Apparently….

Clarence House says The Prince of Wales will not be involved.

Apparently….

Its offices are in Buckingham Street.

Apparently……

P.S. Thanks to The Jobbing Doctor and The Guardian whose pens directed us where to look.

  2. Ah yes. Dear old Chris Bulstrode, whose sister was let off with some overeuthusiastic use of opiates. Fills me with confidence. Don’t think I’ll be using the College of Medicine’s services any time soon..
