    Brilliant stuff, Alem. The word is spreading, thanks to the success of your appeal. You didn't make much of what it took though: the amount of work you did, the amount of preparation and writing, that was truly impressive, and I'm not easily impressed.

    Having seen the impressive care put into the document on What Do They Know, this doesn't surprise me at all. It might not have gained much readership, but it was some of the best writing on PACE I've seen. Hoping for a speedy return to health for him!

    I'm wondering if this could be brought to Australian current affair shows attention. A sick Australian exposing UK major research as basically being fraudulent, well I'd think that could be quite news worthy.

    (I'm not able to follow that up at this point of time but I do think of this as a news opportunity if anyone can bring this to the attention of our current affair media and contact some of those shows).

    Do we have any word on when the reanalysis will be published in a journal?
