    bananaman, that's excellent. It's exciting to see local and regional associations insist that something possible big not be allowed to just slip by.

    BAPOAEMECASKBACME.com is still available!

    Our new org to fight BACME could be:

    the British Association of Patients and other Actual Experts on ME/CFIDS against the sham known as the British Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME

    Kinda snappy, huh?

    luckily, BAPOAEMECASKBACME.com is still available.

    I think that the head of BACME (spit) is Dr Esther Crawley?

    Just to get a flavour of her ideas on XMRV (for example) there is a discussion in the WPI facebook page of a recent talk by her.

    It's under WPI on facebook, Discussions, What we are up against.

    Thanks XMRV, well I suppose I shoudn't be surprised to read what Crawley said in that Dorset group talk but I kind of am, it is all so utterly blatantly awful and so shocking that an ME group would let it happen!

    QUESTIONS RAISED OVER THE TRAINING ROLE OF A NEW BODY FOR ME/CFS PROFESSIONALS

    The following statement was issued by the West Midlands ME Groups Consortium (WMMEG), which is to be sent to the All Party Parliamentary Group for ME:

    WMMEG call upon the British Association for CFS/ME (BACME) to re-write their constitution and to urgently address the issue of balance, content and appropriateness of their education and training programmes for UK healthcare professionals.


    WMMEG (West Midlands ME Groups Consortium)

    Apparently there is more on this on the ME Association's website.

    Their conference is this week. If anyone hears anything, we'd all be interested (I imagine).

    If that lot - BACME - is British then I am not. Big name substance lacking. On the other hand the growing support for the WMMEG by increasing numbers of countrywide local support groups spells out the difference.
