Salisbury paid the price in a minority position?

  • Comment

Ian Salisbury was elected top of the poll on a pledge to try to constrain the ARB's operations to those set down in the Registration Act. This he has conscientiously tried to do at great cost to himself. He has achieved limited success, in that we are all now better aware of the ARB's real ambitions. Having decided he can achieve nothing further in his minority situation on the board, he has resigned. In what way does he deserve to be labelled 'infamous ' and a 'rebel' (AJ 17.2.05)?

Those who voted him in are rapidly reaching the same conclusion that he has reached:

protection of title is worthless without protection of function.

In seeking to retain this totally spurious protection, we have created a rod for our own backs.
