    Thanks for that. Think there was a previous version around at some point, but this one seems more updated? Have downloaded it. :)

    wow this fool got knighted ! I would have thought Margaret could just make his job disappear being in the House of Lords and all.

    so presumably he seriously believes what he is saying and isn't just doing it for the money ?

    @ash0787, I am pretty sure Margaret Williams is a different person to the Countess of Mar who sits in the House of Lords .

    I believe the Countess of Mar is also a Margaret.

    Yes, they aren't one and the same, two separate Margarets.

    It seems that alternative truth and alternative science had their antecedents. Psychobabble has been doing it since Charcot and Freud.
