One of the strangest things in my opinion about the recent measles problems in south wales is that Wakefield has popped up again and is still defending his claims about MMR safety which have been so thoroughly discredited and debunked. As part of this he issued a claim to debate publicly "any serious challenger on MMR safety".
Well a medical doctor and parent of an autistic child has offered to do that, but Wakefield has ignored his offer and now wants to debate only Dr. David Salisbury, and only if it's put on live TV. To me this seems like it's just all about publicity. Maybe something to do with the pitch for a US reality TV show he's working on?

I geniunely cannot understand why anyone would defend this man has having the safety of children at heart. He has been shown to be dishonest, and totally discredited. How can anyone still think he's a good guy "fighting agains a system" which is trying to harm children?
