    Yet another decent article. If this keeps up I may have to raise my expectations of the UK mainstream press....

    One "unfortunate" comment so far.

    This is such a good article. And I'm glad they included the fact that she's only able to function at any level because of drugs prescribed off label. I think it's the best article I've seen in the British press, and the Torygraph is read by a lot of politicians and doctors, I suspect.

    It's a very good article. And the psychosomatic person sounded like a bitter loser.

    Ended up sending this one to my family instead of the express....got a lot of stick for sending the daily mail one, so this seemed a lot better ...don't want to become a bore and all that.

    I thought the article definitely was far more pro biological. I hope Jen doesn't run out of steam or cause herself a relapse

    If she's up for a big challenge, converting the guardian would be a real boon.

    @arewenearlythereyet Has the Daily Mail covered Unrest yet, or are you meaning a different article?

    Hmm, so no comment from Daily Mail regarding Unrest yet?

    It has featured in virtually all the major UK papers now.

    And the thing we have to always remember of course, when praising the press, is that but for Jennifer Brea, none of this would be happening. Fantastic lady.
