    Love the derogatory way they talk about Wessely.

    Interesting bit around 25 mins in about
    "social model of understanding disability has given way to an extreme behaviouralist approach that is both inappropriate and life threatening";

    There is a letter up on screen will try and screen shot it later to read.

    The presenter believes that the change in attitude towards sick and disabled people is by design and says they will be covering the issue in more detail.

    This publication/channel could be a useful ally.

    And also Crawley as "vocal"
    Haven't we heard that very same description before? Are the tables turning? :D

    Correct. It is not an unintended consequence, it is the aim.

    It is a deliberate cull.

    Good. :thumbup:

    I thought quite a while ago that the best way to turn things around was to not only expose their wrong-doing but to ridicule them. This seems to be catching on. It is after all what they have been doing to ME patients for decades.

    Oh, this video clip is wonderful! So pleased to see tables deservedly turning at long last and ridicule being given where it's due. Hoping that more news outlets will follow suit.

    It's had 626 views so far on You Tube. So not exactly mainstream, but every little helps. Seems to be run by volunteers who started because of a local political problem in Plymouth. Now they are taking on the whole UK!

    I like that, I think we can all relate our ME experience to the one that started their group. We ought to pass them more information, establish a relationship.
