    Thanks, Polly - I've left a positive comment, hoping to encourage Ellee to do further coverage and in case politicians do indeed see it. I suggest we all leave a couple of positive lines for Ellee (particularly anyone who is UK XMRV+).

    Some moron has put this as a comment :confused:

    You cant expect the government to shoulder every problem that comes up. People should be careful in everything that they do.

    I dont quite think he understands the crux of the situation do you

    No he doesn't but his comment is so self-evidently stupid that I'm sure people will think he's an idiot and just dismiss it!
