    Found this by prof Venneri. Haven't watched through you can't see the slides so hard to concentrate which is ironic given the topic.

    ALERT: CHRIS BURTON.

    Need to keep an eye on this one.

    What is his position on ME. Has he completely changed and renounced his previous position.

    I have forewarned about the BPSers and how they may try to do subvert the Unrest campaign.

    Thanks to the Sheffield ME group - who are paying for my overnight stay!

    I think there may still be a few seats left for the screening at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine tomorrow (Thursday 2nd) where Jonathan Edwards and myself will be on the Q and A Panel

    Thanks Charles,

    Anyone else on the panel (and not saying that yourself and JE will not be enough of a draw!)

    Some members of the Biobank team will also be on the Panel at the LSHTM screening

    Not sure who, but one or more from - Luis Nacul, Eliana Lacerda, Caroline Kingdon and Jackie Cliff

    I think we have about 200 people booked in so far - but there may still be a few last minute seats available

    Delighted to help. When I heard that you had offered your time, I was determined that the means would be found. When I visited the hotel (it is a nice one) the manager generously, and immediately, offered your room and full English breakfast FOC. Sheffield ME and Fibromyalgia Group kindly found a way to fund the rest of your expenses.
    Although this event is not organised by the ME Group, they will have a stand at the venue and a member of the group will be on the panel.
    Unfortunately, although I really wanted to be on the panel at this event, I'm unable to accept my invitation, as I won't be in the UK on the day.
    The ME Group's own screening is later today and I will be on theirs.
