Dear General Medical Council,

My request above still awaits acknowledgement. I note that Peter Rubin was allegedly elected as your chair on 6 Apr 09 per the news item below:

Can you elaborate on the electoral process by which he won?

Yours faithfully,

Dear General Medical Council,

The internet says that Peter Rubin traveled to Israel on a fellowship in 2009 about the same time that you claim he was 'elected' to GMC hair.

Why do you continue to conceal his register of interests. May I ask if this was mentioned amongst the declaration of his conflicts earlier?

Yours sincerely,

Dear General Medical Council,

The web-site asks me to update the status of my request every few days. However, I am yet to receive any acknowledgement from you. You give no disclosure about how Peter Rubin was "elected" to GMC chair. Please let me know if you have no intention of doing so.

It appears that a few months after his so-called election to GMC chair Peter Rubin appointed himself as GMC chair through "open competition". Please refer to the link below:

Everyone knows that GMC is a circus but it also appears to be the personal fiefdom of Peter Rubin & his tribe. Can you explain how that came about?

Yours faithfully,

C Nazareth
