Conversation Eastell and Blumsohn 10 September 2003

Blumsohn: So far as the plenary poster if we go through all the things I said I would be comfortable with that.
Eastell: Mmm
Blumsohn: ... and for the other poster I am comfortable with the poster but I have still never seen the data... which to give an oral presentation at the ACR meeting I would find a difficult thing to do.
Eastell: The only thing that we have to watch all the time is our relationship with P&G. Because we are ... because we have the big Sheffield Centre Grant [from P&G] which is a good source of income, we have got to really watch it. So.... the reason why I worry is the network within P&G is like lightening. So if Ian is unhappy it goes to Arkadi, it goes from Arkadi to Nora and before we know it, there is an issue, there is a problem... and it has to be addressed and so forth. and so I was getting worried that the whole thing might be activated and that would affect our relationship.

It's always interesting to watch cowards trying to wriggle out of a tight spot. Keep them on the run. You have the truth on your side.

Where parts 2,3,4....??

Hey Aubrey.

I've had an Eastell defender!

No problems --- all we want here is open debate and examination of the facts, not anonymous ad-hominem comment. I have reproduced the posting on your blog from this anonymous commenter on your blog where it belongs - right here. The comment will be addressed quite clearly I think.

Richard Eastell is as honest as the day is long. I simply do not believe he has done anything wrong. Not all 'whistleblowers' are right - profession enmity and ego can be a powerful motivator.

Eastell continues to parade around the world - an emperor-without-clothes.

He has a nice smile. I liked the picture in the THES with the P&G logo around the neck.

This is not unique. It is a mandatory requirement to get to be a KOL in medicine.
