    I hope not, please... this article is disinformation, I feel sorry for wathever disease this woman has or had, but it almost certanly wasn't ME, not even a mild case. But if it is indeed a mild case of ME and he has a supreme force of will, her doctor or anybody should strongly advise her that if he continues excerting his body that way, she´s going to end with severe me. Before having my ME diagnosis, when I had "mild" ME, I overexerted myself using a bike to go to work, now I've got "moderate" ME thanks to that and I can't barely use a bike, getting PEM even after 10 blocks, and I used to do 80 blocks per day... if only somebody whould have told me the consequences...

    Maybe not. He has a son with autism and he is well aware you can’t wish that away. He may be rather weak on science, but then so is pretty much every politician, at least speaking of modern politicians.

    Not worthy of The Times. (Unless I have the wrong idea living in Oz and never having read it). Have they gone tabloid ?

    Sort of looks like they chucked in 'another obstacle' just to make this woman's achievement "EVEN MORE AMAZING!!"

    This is the UK where sadly she may have been diagnosed without even a physical examination. It's not uncommon to meet newly diagnosed people here who have never heard of POTs or PEM as an example

    Yes that does happen. But according to the Gov spokesman in the Lords, CFS should not be given as a diagnosis until other things have been ruled out. The Medics dont do this.
