    Excellent - well worth a read.

    Thanks both to @Dave 30th and Carol Monaghan.

    Yes excellent indeed, the ME community is very lucky to have Carol Monaghan on board and of course DT who set this whole thing alight.

    Surely from this, setting up the ME APPG might be viable again , with fresh faces and a real purpose ?

    Sounds very positive from Monaghan. Great to have an MP seeming to take a real interest.

    I can worry that it's a mistake to put any emphasis on concerns about the PACE researchers starting from a hypothesis about CFS being a psychological disorder, as it's easy for that to lead to distracting and irrelevant debates about neurological/psychological divides, stigma, etc, but it seems that she has been pretty careful on this.
