    Maybe someone should email Alex Clegg and ask if they are looking for someone interested asking for evidence for therapist-delivered treatments for medically unexplained symptoms.

    I might have a conflict of interest.

    Yup. I posted more for the irony factor than for the possibility that one of us, should we bother to apply, might be accepted. :)

    @Andy

    Following from you comment re "irony factor", a thread on the irony of ME might be an idea. :) :thumbup: (Not that I am suggesting you do this thread.)

    That award will age about as badly as Henry Kissinger's Nobel Peace Prize.

    Wessley served on Sense About Science's advisory council and later they gave him an award for bravery.

    What a remarkable coincidence.

    Perhaps his council chair was dangerous? Ready to collapse at a moments notice? That's surely worth an award! ;)

    It wobbled, @Andy . We have to be sensitive to these trials & tribulations.
