Abuse of Trust V - Yellow card report - complaint

I have a keen desire to understand why it is that shite is so often characterized as excellence, so I sent this to the MHRA, copied to Breckenridge, Woods, Vara, Johnson and a whole bunch of daily newspapers:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to complain formally about the fact that my Yellow Card report has not been followed up.

I experienced suicidal ideations coincidental to fluoxetine use, which I take to be about as serious as it can possibly be, short of incapacity or death, and yet I have heard nothing following the receipt of a hard copy of my submission. I would like an explanation for the MHRA's failure to follow up. I wish to be advised of the manufacturer's details (it being a generic drug that I was prescribed). I wish to understand why the system that I was subjected to was so monumentally incompetent, and I imagine the MHRA's contribution will be definitive, in this regard.

I would like the explanation to be full, and detailed, with all considerations properly (as assessed by me) discussed. And I would like an apology, please, even though it's a bit late for that.

Best regards

Matthew Holford

Well, the MHRA, as an entity, has already demonstrated all the requisite psychopathic traits, in my inexpert view. There can only be one logical explanation for that...
