BMA Joins Vernon Coleman in attacking GMC

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc

My long-running campaign against the General Medical Council (the UK body which gives licences to doctors and then seems to me to take them away if doctors dare to tell the truth or behave ethically) is bearing fruit.

I’m delighted – though slightly startled - to see that the British Medical Association (`the patients’ enemy’) agrees with my views on the GMC.

The General Medical Council is, in my opinion, useless and dangerous. It needs to be closed down immediately. In my view, the staff sometimes appear rude or uppity, don’t understand the extent and limit of their responsibilities, and don’t seem to realise that their (essentially subservient) role in life is merely to protect patients.

On 25th April 2023, I published an article headed ` Here’s why cowardly doctors didn’t dare stand up and tell the truth about covid and the jab’.

I explained that the GMC had struck doctors off the register (and removed their licences to practise) if they dared question the official, false claim that the world was threatened with a covid pandemic.

And I explained that this was why so many doctors didn’t dare to speak out and tell the truth about the over-marketed flu bug or expose the dangers of the experimental covid-19 `vaccine’.

The hundreds of officious and expensive administrators at the GMC must bear responsibility for the many death and injuries caused by a vaccine that was never fit for use, that didn’t do what it was supposed to do and which did cause a mass of serious health problems – such as death.

Because of the GMC, doctors were too terrified to speak out against the medical establishment. They saw what had happened to colleagues who dared to share their views with their colleagues and the general public. They say that doctors who dared to speak out had their licences removed by the GMC and were, in addition, vilified by the media.

The truth, so well hidden during the last three years, is that the medical establishment was, as it has been for decades, controlled by the pharmaceutical industry and instead of looking at the facts, licensing authorities around the world merely did as they were told to do.

The tragedy is that numerous doctors lost their licences, and their livelihoods, because they dared to speak out and tell the truth. The majority of doctors, seeing what had happened to those who spoke out, kept quiet and betrayed their patients, themselves and their profession. Those gutless wimps should be ashamed.

Now there are two reasons why truth-tellers can celebrate.

First, I am delighted to report that the BMA’s Annual Representative Meeting has passed a no confidence vote for the GMC and will now call for its leaders to be sacked.

The BMA motion said that `too many’ Medical Practitioners Tribunal Services fitness to practise decisions are `disproportionate to the error of the doctors mistake’ and expressed no confidence in the current tribunal.

Doctors voted for a motion calling for the leadership team of the GMC to be dismissed and replaced with a team that `commands the confidence and support of the medical profession’.

The BMA hasn’t yet quite joined me in calling for the entire GMC to be closed down and replaced. But they’re getting close!

Second, Dr Mohammad Adil, the brave surgeon who was struck off the medical register in the UK for daring to air his opinions about the covid fraud, is now taking the GMC to court. On 19th October 2023 his case will be heard at the Royal Court of Justice in London. Dr Adil had his licence taken from for no good reason three years ago. He has been unable to work for all that time.

His crime? Speaking out.

In the United Kingdom, where doctors are licensed by the General Medical Council, an organisation which is, in theory at least, a charity but which appears to have some of the worst qualities of a quango, a government department and an enforcer for the drug industry. I believe that drug companies control governments, they control the medical establishment and, it appears, they may also control the UK’s medical licensing authority – the General Medical Council.

The GMC has become infamous for its extraordinarily one-sided defence of the exaggerated covid pandemic and the pointless but enormously dangerous covid vaccine.

When the fake pandemic was first promoted with enthusiasm in February and March 2020, I immediately described the covid scare a hoax. The figures available proved without any question that the danger of what was clearly merely a rebranded annual flu had been massively exaggerated by people who had a bad track record at assessing the relevant figures. In the UK, the Government’s own official advisors agreed with me, dismissing the covid-19 infection as being no more dangerous than the annual flu. Their expert advice appears to have been ignored in favour of advice from a mathematician with a terrible track record.

The conspirators behind the exaggerated risk (and I use the word conspirators deliberately) did not like my description of the covid scare as a hoax (a video I made was seen by many millions within days) and I was quickly demonised and lied about in the media. The GMC couldn’t take away my licence because their own administrative rules meant that, as with many doctors, my retirement from active practise meant that I’d had to give up my licence. But younger doctors, those still in practice, were to feel the full wrath of the drug company controlled medical establishment.

So, for example, consider the case of Dr Mohammad Adil who, until three years ago was a respected surgeon working in the NHS. Three years ago Dr Adil criticised the government line on covid, and the GMC responded by taking away his licence – meaning that he could no longer practise as a surgeon or, as a doctor in any capacity.

Today, after three years of unemployment, Dr Adil still doesn’t have his licence. The cost to him has been extraordinary. And we should not forget the cost to the NHS. If we consider that in that three years he could have performed 1,000 operations a year – not an unlikely number – then his three year banishment means that 3,000 patients have been denied the operations they needed.

After several hearings, the GMC has still refused to give Dr Adil back his licence. Dr Adil is not alone. I know of several other doctors in the UK who have had their licences removed for criticising the absurd and indefensible covid policy.

And exactly the same thing has been happening around the world where licensing authorities have ignored the scientific evidence and punished doctors who have dared to share the truth with the world – usually on social media. It is this unscientific bullying, and the widespread publicity given to the consequences, which has contributed to the fact that thousands of doctors who share their doubts and fears have kept quiet – frightened that they too would lose their licences and their livelihoods. A doctor without a licence to practice is as useless as a sweep without his brushes or a taxi driver without a cab. (It is extraordinary, by the way, that the GMC appears to have taken no action whatsoever against doctors who did not care enough about patients but allowed themselves to be bribed to vaccinate with an unnecessary and dangerous drug. Nor has it punished doctors who went on strike, demanding an inflationary 35% pay rise, and abandoned their patients – thereby breaking every moral, ethical and professional commitment.)

I now intend to show exactly why the GMC’s decision to deny Dr Adil his licence was always unjustifiable.

First, there is the question of free speech. Article 19 of the United Nations Charter states clearly that `everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression’. There is no codicil limiting the rights of doctors. The GMC’s decision is in direct opposition to this fundamental human right. It has been argued that doctors have a special responsibility because of their position and training but this strengthens rather than weakens the UN charter. Doctors have a special responsibility to speak out when they believe that something is wrong. And, of course, you can’t have a little bit of free speech any more than a woman can be a bit pregnant. You either have free speech or you don’t. To say that a doctor cannot criticise the medical establishment is as nonsensical as saying that an opposition party politician cannot criticise the government. The licensing authorities which have removed doctors’ licences for speaking out are undeniably in breach of the UN Charter. How a lawyer or a judge can justify allowing any licensing body to deny an individual’s right to protection from the UN Charter is, I confess, a mystery to me. Doctors are entitled to share their views with the public and the public is entitled to decide whom to believe.

It is worth noting, by the way, that right from the start, in early spring of 2020, the doctors supporting the government and drug companies have steadfastly refused to debate in public and the main stream media has taken an entirely biased, unbalanced one sided line in reporting the fake pandemic. The BBC, ignoring its own charter and repeated claims of fairness, has even stated that they would not interview anyone questioning the value of vaccination whether they were `right or wrong’. I have frequently challenged vaccine supporters to a live, national public debate. None have had the confidence or the courage to accept the challenge.

Second, the GMC has assumed that the government and the medical establishment must always be correct and beyond criticism. This is dangerous nonsense. One doesn’t have to go very far back in history to find numerous examples of times when the government and the medical establishment have been completely wrong and, as a result, patients have suffered until doctors had the courage to stand up for the truth. When Dr John Snow gave chloroform to Queen Victoria there was an uproar in the medical establishment because it was felt that women should not be given anaesthesia during childbirth. Electroconvulsive therapy, leucotomies and the removal of vast lengths of the intestine were all approved by the medical establishment but later condemned. It was because of the medical establishment that tonsils were removed without good reason. No one knows how many children died as a result. A good deal of unnecessary heart surgery has been performed on patients because of bad medical practices promoted by the medical establishment. It was because of bad medical practices condoned or encouraged by the medical establishment that millions of patients became hooked on barbiturates and then benzodiazepines. And I wonder how many of those who have condemned Dr Adil know that widely used and previously approved vaccination programmes have been condemned as worthless and dangerous.

History shows that the medical establishment has been wrong more often than it has been right and if the GMC stops doctors criticising the government and the medical establishment (known to be linked to the pharmaceutical industry) then nothing will ever change for the better.

If we go back a little in medical history we come across individuals such as Dr Semmelweiss whose work on women lying in labour wards changed medical practice and saved thousands if not millions of lives. Dr Semmelweiss was, of course, viciously attacked by the medical establishment. There are many more examples in my book `Medical Heretics’. Maybe the lawyers working for the General Medical Council would like to read a copy. It is readily available on Amazon.

The undeniable truth is that history shows that the medical establishment has always suppressed the truth and promoted profitable lies. Nothing has changed. The medical establishment still promotes medical procedures which don’t work, while suppressing essential but inconvenient truths. The GMC’s fundamental mistake appears to me to have been to have assumed that its loyalty should be to the medical establishment rather than to the welfare of patients.

Third, and more directly perhaps, the evidence now shows quite clearly that the medical establishment’s official line on covid-19 was completely false. Everything that the establishment has said and done has been wrong and dangerous. The General Medical Council and all those who supported its decisions seemed to have assumed that the establishment was right.

If they had looked closely at the evidence they would have known that the UK Government’s own scientific advisers decided, back in March 2020, that covid was not a major threat. They would have known that Government statistics show that the number of people who died from covid-19 was no greater than the number who die from flu every year (a disease which had mysteriously and conveniently disappeared). Indeed, the number of deaths from what was clearly a rebranded flu was no greater in 2020 and 2021 than it was in some previous years. Moreover, it is now clear that the absurd policies of lockdowns, social distancing and mask wearing were without any scientific foundation, were unnecessary and dangerous and were in part responsible for the entirely predictable increase in deaths which marked 2022 and will continue for some years to come. The PCR test was never intended to be used as it was, and has been proven, beyond any doubt, to be of no more value than a coin toss. It is clear that the closing down of schools and businesses was also entirely unnecessary and has done massive, long-lasting damage. Worse still, it is now abundantly clear, and generally accepted by intelligent, well-informed doctors and scientists, that the covid-19 vaccine was never properly tested, was never fit for purpose and is the most dangerous and deadly pharmaceutical product ever marketed. Largely because of links with the pharmaceutical companies involved the government and the medical establishment misled the public and the health professions. All the evidence for these claims is available on my website and books and in over 300 videos I have made in the last three years.

Finally, there is one other rather shocking reason why the GMC should not have made any rulings about Dr Adil or any other doctors who criticised the official line on covid-19 and the covid-19 vaccine.

Remarkably, it seems to me that the General Medical Council has itself been behaving quite improperly. Its disciplinary actions must surely now come into question.

The General Medical Council has invested nearly £1,000,000 in fast food and drink firms and, worse still, has invested large amounts of money from doctors’ fees in drug companies. And one of the companies in which it had shares was one of the companies making a covid-19 vaccine.

How can the GMC judge doctors’ behaviour in relation to covid and covid jabs when it has a vested interest in the financial success of vaccine manufacturers such as Astra Zeneca?

It seems to me that it cannot.

I believe that any doctors who have lost their licences for criticising the fake pandemic and the toxic covid jab should be reinstated immediately since the GMC is clearly `contaminated’.

It could surely be argued that the GMC, which has money invested in vaccine manufacture, has a vested interest in protecting vaccine making and should not, therefore, discipline doctors whose actions might have damaged the earning potential of any companies in which it has invested its own money.

The GMC can be compared to a judge punishing someone for criticising a product in which he himself has a financial interest. Indeed, I would argue that the GMC, and its vast army of overpaid, and, it seems to me, sometimes arrogant, pen pushers has abandoned its role as a guardian of the public and become an enforcer for the pharmaceutical industry.

Those doctors, like Dr Adil, who had the wisdom to see that the government and the medical establishment were wrong deserve praise not punishment.

Those who had the courage to speak out should be applauded and it is they, not the promoters of a `vaccine’ that does not do what it was promised to do but which has caused many deaths and much illness, who should be honoured.

In a free and progressive society criticism of the establishment should never be subject to censorship.

My conclusion can only be that the General Medical Council is unfit for purpose and should be closed down immediately. It is not fit to hand out dog licences, and certainly not equipped to control the licensing of doctors. It has failed to do its job: to protect the public and it appears to me to have acted more in the interests of the pharmaceutical industry than the interests of patients.

I hope that readers will send this article to their MP and to the press and to ask why the GMC has been allowed to act against the interests of the public for the last three years. I’m banned from all main stream media and all social media so please put links to this article on Facebook, Twitter and all the rest.

I suspect that other licensing bodies around the world may, on investigation, be shown to have similarly failed their publics and I hope that they too will be investigated.

Note: Vernon Coleman’s book `Why and how doctors kill more people than cancer’ contains a chapter about the General Medical Council entitled `The General Medical Council is worse than useless’. The book also contains a good deal more about doctors, nurses and the failures of health care. The book is available via the bookshops on and .
