    How is this an 'exclusive'? Insurance companies have been openly doing this for decades.

    It looks like Mind and Rethink Mental Illness were involved in leading the Guardian to this 'exclusive'. I've not been particularly impressed by what I've seen from either of them in the past. Mind seems particularly poor.

    Yeah, I wasn't to clear about that either. The reason I posted it was at least it's an example of it being openly reported on.

    Maybe it's that the public mood is different now, and so the media are finding the "courage" to talk more openly about it?

    Yeah - good to have you posting things like this. It was just the Guardian's presentation of it that was odd.
