Skeptics in the PubOn Wednesday 19 October Simon Singh will talking at Guildford Skeptics in the Pub. The event is taking place at The Star Inn, 2 Quarry Street, Guildford, GU1 3TY.

Simon Singh, co-author of Trick or Treatment? Alternative Medicine on Trial is coming to Guildford to give a brand new talk on the subject of Science and the Media.

As many skeptics will no doubt be aware, Simon was sued by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) for using the word ‘bogus’ in reference to certain claims they made about what they could cure. After an epic battle that took him to the High Court, Simon finally won the right to defend his comments as ‘fair comment’. On 15 April 2010, the BCA backed down and the law suit ended.

However, the fight doesn’t stop there and Simon is still supported by the ‘Sense about Science’ campaign who hope to keep libel laws out of science.
