    The Guardian is one of the top English language websites read globally so
    the insult to the ME community is also a global concern.

    Anyone who names himself as a murderer hanged for poisoning his wife must have real psychological problems Is this why he is poioning peoples minds! Why is a national newspapers perpetuating this obvious celebration of Murder literally and metaphorically!

    I believe the email address provided is invalid until you take out the spaces either side of the '@' so the address then becomes

    al_barclayuk (sorry, mod)@yahoo.co.uk

    please someone correct me if I'm wrong...

    Hey Sproggle, the reason for the spaces is so spam bots that trawl the internet cannot find Annette's email and send lots of rubbish and use it to send lots of rubbish. It's new style nettiquette :D When sending it yourself you take out the spaces.

    I did edit your post so it can't be picked up.

    I would suggest three questions

    Why is the paper gloryfying a murderer by perpetuation his name

    Why is the paper ingnoring the WHO

    Why is it aiding and abetting the discrimination of a class of people that the uk government recognises have a real disease more disabling than aids or multiple sclerosos

    Thanks for your support

    Hi there,

    Just wanted to say "thank you" for supporting this.

    I started writing it last week and have had loads of support for it.

    People have offered useful information that I'd not had myself.

    So this letter is really a group effort.

    We hope to send the letter off on Tuesday with a list of names collected by then.

    However, we can go on collecting names to add onto the end of the letter on it's own web page.

    The Guardian will have a link to the web page version so they'll know how much support it is gathering.

    So there is no closing date as such.

    Sincerely,

    Stephen @ MEActionUK
