BBC News – Kent health expert resigns over tobacco comments

BBC News – Kent health expert resigns over tobacco comments.

Dr Marion Gibbon of Kent County Council Public Health Department has resigned over the issue of being able to speak out about the Council investing in tobacco companies through its pension fund.  Dr Gibbon was disciplined after giving an unauthorised interview to the BBC last year.

Remarkably KCC’s deputy leader is quoted stating that tobacco companies are reputable.  Perhaps he should have a word with George Osborne MP, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, but who as a backbencher famously accused Imperial Tobacco chiefs of being either stupid or crooks, and they didn’t look stupid!
