Proof Britain's finally lost its marbles: How a highly respected surgeon who praised a toddler's father for helping out 'manfully' when her mother was sick ended up being accused of 'sexism'

The toddler in Colin Baillie’s consulting room at the Royal Preston Hospital in Lancashire had blonde hair and a bubbly personality.

Jessica Martin was, in the words of paediatric surgeon Mr Baillie, a ‘lovely young lady’.
He said so in a follow-up letter to her parents; it was a nice touch which typified Mr Baillie’s warm ‘bedside manner’, a quality not all consultants possess.

Jessica’s condition, it should be stressed, was not critical, nor were her symptoms causing her discomfort. Nevertheless, her GP took the precaution of referring her to Mr Baillie.

Mr Baillie is actually based at the renowned Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Liverpool, but holds regular clinics at the Royal Preston; he has more than 30 years of experience and is widely respected in his field. This is evident from the messages of thanks left on Alder Hey’s own website.

One glowing testimonial is from the parents of a little girl who was born with a heart condition and had to undergo a series of operations at Alder Hey last year. The doctor they singled out was Mr Baillie.

‘You saved my daughter’s life,’ they wrote. ‘Thank you … you will never know the gratitude we have for you.’
Nor is it an isolated tribute. ‘Mr Colin Baillie is fantastic surgeon and I can never thank him enough for saving my beautiful daughter,’ were the heartfelt words of another grateful mum.
So Jessica, aged three — who lives in Chorley, Lancashire, with her mum and dad, Jo and Billy Martin, and her two brothers — could not have been in safer hands.

Mrs Martin, 33, a freelance typist, was unable to attend the consultation about her daughter with Mr Baillie on October 20, because she was ill. Jessica was accompanied instead by web designer Mr Martin. The examination went well. And Jessica’s family were assured there was nothing to be unduly concerned about.
Why are we telling you about Jessica Martin’s routine appointment at the Royal Preston?

Because of what happened next: an almost farcical chain of events which, for many people, epitomises the kind of world we now live in, where all too often offence is sought, where none really exists, and common sense has all but disappeared.

This bit amused me.

He doesn’t blame the parents,’ said Mrs Baillie. ‘He doesn’t think they understood what would happen [once they voiced their views] and he has no problem with them. His main concern now is for their welfare.

They didn't understand that they'd be splashed all over the papers when they agreed to an interview, and that they might get some negative opinions?

Mr Baillie sounds like a nice man. I hope he's laughing about it all. Surprised

I do wonder about the phrasing though. Maybe he meant to say "thankfully" instead of "manfully".

The downside of social media is any half brained plain Jane who probably got sod all attention from anyone apart from her overweight husband, can suddenly be an overnight internet sensation, getting their face (and those of her poor kids) splashed all over the tabloids.

Posing woefully..or joyfully (depending what they are whining/gloating about) they witter on, basking in their 5 minutes, unconcerned about who else  they are dragging into their little 'look at me'  vendettas... usually someone far more worthy than their pathetic selves.

STUPID COW. Rolling Eyes
