Committee(s)

As readers of this Blog may have realised, one of my favorite reference sites is the “Urban Dictionary”. (As all good clinical scientists I have to declare any conflicting interests and I can honestly say I have no shares in the UC Company or know nothing about its organisation. I just like its irreverence!). I looked up its definition of a “Committee” and it certainly lives up to its impertinence. A committee is: “A group of people that forms when the stupidity of one person won’t suffice”; and for good measure “Committees are the foundation of bureaucracy”.
