We have previously shown that in the context of an ideal Bohm's version of the EPR thought experiment, there is no outcome independent hidden variable theory which can reproduce all the predictions of quantum mechanics [IPM/P-1999/041]. Here, we want to show that in any experiment (ideal or actual) involving two conjugate variables, the condition of outcome independence is violated at the level of a causal hidden variable theory, whenever the exchangeability condition holds for quantum conditional probabilities in the ideal case.
