Although nothing to do with MS, recently ProfB was in the News for a different reason…not Drug Discovery but probably suspected drug pushing.
Will he get pulled over again, especially as the story has left these shores
If he gets into Sweden ProfB is giving a live talk on thursday morning . I guess live streamed from the ECTRIMS web site on the “Rationale of B cell therapy” this is a taster before a debate on the use of rituximab. (Times local Swedish time)
184 – Rationale of B-cell therapy in MS D. Baker, London, UK 11:45 – 12:00
185 – Rituximab is a reasonable alternative in MS treatmentF. Piehl, Stockholm, SE 12:00 – 12:15
186 – Rituximab is not a reasonable alternative in MS treatmentM. T. Wallin, Washington, US 12-15-12.30
Have a watch if you can
This week our German chumbs are having good old laugh at the British.
No, not at the fiasco that is occuring in the Palace of Westminster, that’s not really funny, is it?, but at the power of the good old British Border Control system. This looks to track people on the naughtly list. But because the system seems frankly abit shite, ProfB has to say hello to a Border Control Officer every time he gets back to Blighty and now when entering and leaving other countries
In this weeks Spiegel (The Mirror)
I suspect we are not finished and the the only solution is to get a fake passport with a different name….. Yes I jest.. but there is a possibility that someone had a fake passpost with David Baker” which has triggered this mess in the first place. This bloke was was born in the same place as MD2. The police botched his arrest at a Golf Course chased after him in a golf bugey verses a BMW, he got away. Real Keystone Cops stuff. He went on the run after he had ben making £3,000,000 in 2 months (for 2 years) selling drugs and was caught in France with £71,000 cash.
If you are Called David Baker and are on the run….Ditch the Passport Kid you are being stalked.
Alternatively it may have to be “Deed Poll here we come” and time to change the name. What should ProfB use, a middle name?, different surname?, a change completely?. Then get a real one passport and hope the problem stops.
But really how shite is the system? That’s the next bit of research, before ProfB makes a move. No point in using “Boris Johnson”…he won’t be around long enough I suspect for people to get the Joke. But not all David Bakers are being stopped.
However ProfB is not the only person having this problem we know of three other academics in the same boat and having found a post about Chips and UK entry there are alot more..The system is Shite and is simply not good enough.
If you can read the story you will realise that MD has taught ProfB some mischievous, bad habits and he now enters and often leaves the UK with a T shirt.
Next weeks will be
Sometime you get a Border control officer with a sense of humor..Last one said “Interesting T shirt .Having a little protest are we sir?” I said “yes” and starting questions of my own. You never know maybe he will get another nugget of information that helps explain it all.
Maybe the UK Government should francise their system out to Google. They do a better job. They are tracking ProfB 24/7 know everything about him and what he reads and buys and they obviously reads his emails otherwise he wouldn’t get targeted adds for “Grammerly” every time he uses Youtube. They obviously knows he can’t spell.
