So let me get this right.

Dr Jerry Vlasak, a US trauma surgeon and former vivisectionist attracted the attention of the Home Office for his widely publicised statement at a conference in Washington, in which he said: "I don't think you'd have to kill too many [researchers]. I think for five lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives."

Well, that's not too many, is it? Unless, of course, the researcher killed is your father, or son, or brother or husband. Then it's not so good really.

Just for once, UK Home Secretary David "Bet he subscribes to the Spectator" Blunkett has done the right thing and banned this disgusting creep from coming to the UK. Vlasak is outraged. Good.

Alternatively, Blunkett should allow him in - then let Huntingdon Life Sciences, the Cambridge-based laboratory, use HIM for medical research.

I understand that some people are genuinely concerned about how animals are treated when it comes to the area of medical research. But wackos like Vlasak give them all a bad name.
