Homeopathy and Humbug in Parliament



News-Commentary, Drollery


Homeopathy, Politics, Government, Public Health

    Suggests that although homeopathy is 'humbug', a homeopath may sit in the House of Commons, a suggestion prompted by news that members of the French senate had defended the practice. Argues that, since homeopathy 'concerns nothing more than the public health', 'Humbug is at least not less Parliamentary in the British Legislature than it is in the French'.
