    Hey, is it me, or is that statement missing some words? I'm not even talking about words of support. I'm talking about words that make sentences, you know, complete and understandable.

    Words of support would help, but maybe not...

    It's almost as if they are gloating.

    Yep, in the context of "never wavered" the missing words are willfully blind, stuborn and arrogant, and in the context of "safety of the child" the words missing are false imprisonment and abuse.

    Maybe the English is so bad, that they are offering their full support and they are asking Esther Crawley to step down, distancing themselves from the LP and this is a full and unwavering critique of the PACE trial........and maybe we just didn't understand what they are trying to say.....maybe......

    :rolleyes:

    So, they have a philosophy of being pro choice, but now, when that choice has been taken away from young people with ME they are not going to lift a finger.

    Also loved that they put in that they supported him before - so anyone who doesn't know him and the history of ME will thinks he's in the habit of causing trouble.

    I was merely going to comment that as with the government patient choice policy, choice is favoured so long as people make the choice expected of them.

    It then occurred to me that No 10 has something called the "Nudge Unit" originating psychological methods to encourage people to act in approved manners without their being aware of it. I have never been quite sure who pulls the strings of AYME.

    Controlled opposition pulls its own strings.
