Doctors - noses in the trough again.

Peoples freedom in medicine has expanded recently with the the spread of the internet and access to first hand information.

This upsets the medical establishment, as like 'high priests' of old they have manouvered theselves in to the role of gatekeepers, and are cheefully charging the free people of england royaly for access to things that we have already paid for.

The current proposal is that medical 'self tests' currently available off the shelf on demand should be regulated -- i.e. the doctors want to ensure that they get their cut.

This behaviour is specifically cited by Milton Freedman (regulation of medicine) as one of the most obvious examples of the exploitation of the free man by vested interestes, and an attack on individual freedom.
