"insinuation: to suggest, without being direct, that something unpleasant is true" Cambridge Dictionary
Yesterday I was accused by an MSP, who is also a psychiatrist, of making an "insinuation" about him. Twice he used the word in an Email to me. I found this accusation to be unfair and untrue. A right wind up.
I want to be clear about this matter. I am not a person who insinuates. If I have something to say then I say it. I am very direct. I won't beat about the bush, particularly if it's a matter of doctors getting money from drug companies.
If an MSP who is also a psychiatrist makes a declaration on his parliamentary Register of Interests then I assume that is a true statement. The fact that he has received payments from pharma in the past does not mean that he is still in receipt of them.
