I remember reading this article in 2015. I forgot to add it to PR then. https://www.theguardian.com/comment...-people-mental-health-problems-work-treatment I really would love to hear opinions of people here about this complete 100% contradiction and hypocrisy. In this article he says mental patients should not be forced into treatment and should not be linked to benefits. However his 30 year career on ME has been precisely to do just that. He changed ME into CFS and developed forced treatment of GET for our false illness beliefs. He advised insurers and DWP to force claimants into GET and stop benefits for not only not undertaking the treatments but for not recovering which culminated in as we know the PACE trial. I saw it on Twitter being tweeted by SW last night.

Perhaps the mods @Kina could please move over @Valentijn and @TiredSam posts here as they they deserve to be in their own thread and are very helpful as they provide the evidence to back what i am saying and and a good explanation from tiredsam. I could not multi quote valentinjin's post fully here. SW really is an enigma. He either doesn't have any self insight into his contradictions and is delusional. Or one of the most bare faced lying shameful dangerous propagandists using his psychiatric training to manipulate everyone (including the medical professionals, media and politicians). And this is the best PR piece ever to cover his tracks and show how nice a guy he is to the world whilst hiding the reality of his actions as the person most responsible for those very things which are exactly those he condemns in the article and concealing his sick and cruel personality defects which have caused harm on an industrial scale and unprecedented in modern medicine. I know which one he is. Or he could be both. What you think?????
