The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    The bit that comes after countrygirl's extract, featuring that "apathetic, negligent and incompehensibly arrogant response from Sir Bruce Keogh", is a stunning example of establishment hauteur, a real "let them eat cake" dismissal. Shocking.

    Since this seems to indicated a new order and a regime change it would be good to do this over again while the new people are fresh. If they will be there for any length of time it would be good to subtly point out that as they go through their tenure they will look foolish indeed if they do not address the glaring neglect of people with ME as the rest of the world moves forward. All previous establishment people in these positions surely felt that business as usual would suffice and nothing would challenge the world order. This is no longer the case. Helping them to see that might be useful.

    I heard a radio programme a while back about Simon Stevens. Clare Gerada (Mrs Wessely) was described as a friend and former neighbour :(
