  1. Ha ha ha, reads just like the Hospitality & Gifts Register of da Rovrum Laybah Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns, unfortunately.

    And the biggest lie of all is their pretence that they work for us and care about us and our lives. Nothing could be further from the truth IMHO. It’s quite clear who Barron is working for by reading the above info.

    I’m unaware of any clinical background that he’s had that would equip him to advise anybody on the purchase of a kiddies’ chemistry set, let alone a worldwide pharmaceutical company.

    So in my mind the only reason for a Jap drugs company wanting to cuddle up to him is for the commercial benefits that the Japs perceive he can help them to achieve via his political connections.

    All across our ex-mining communities the churchyards are full of those who paid the ultimate price for the extraction of coal to power our industries. Some of those miners would not receive a £1000 in wages in their hard short lives. Barron gets £3K for 20 hrs work in a year. Vomit, vomit.

    Hang your head in shame Mr Barron. You are no longer worthy of the respect of those who elected you and whom you purport to represent.
