Take off the mask, doctor

February 10, 2011

Am I missing the point of the Dr Margot Feelbetter column (Blog confidential)? Is it all some elaborate, postmodern, ironic joke?

Recent advice has included: ignore what was certainly a criminal offence (sex in a public place) and might have been tantamount to rape on the part of a senior manager ("Behind closed doors", 6 January); and accept bullying and mendacity on the part of senior managers ("Do blame yourself", 3 February).

Or, is Dr Feelbetter also a senior manager?
