More Porky Pies!

Just a quickie - what is it with 'pseudoscience' TV presenters and their inventive CVs? Here we have three people who've told massive porkies (pardon me, completely accidental typos) on their CVs and have got away with, way after the time when it would have mattered.

We have "Professor" Patrick Holford - DC's Improbably Science and Holford Watch are the best places to catch up on that story.

Then we had Doctor **Cough** Gillian McKeith - Bad Science is your destination for that one.

And now we have "Bringing Up Baby"'s Claire Verity whose CV, it turns out, is a lot shorter than she would have you believe.

It's not difficult to check a CV.

Thanks for reading.

King Of World, Dr* T, Dip. Everything, GOD, Make. of Univ.
