    I still don't understand why the WPI is stating this in a letter posted on their website and Facebook rather than an article or letter in science/medical journal???

    I hope people like Simon Wesseley who has helped to have children seized from their parents under the mental health act get well and truly sued. The treatment of Ewan Proctor and others should not be forgotten. This video on YouTube contains an interview with Ewan, the way he was treated was inhumane.

    this pattern of accusation and counter accusation was played out between the Americans and the Europeans in the" AIDS WARS" This resulted in a (temporary) suspension of diplomatic relations between the USA and France!

    Gong Li is heavenly! Thanks for the link Hope.

    Gary Oldman for Wessely - no one does malevolent psychotic in primary schoolteacher mode better than Oldman.

    How can you say that? Clyde was cute, cuddly, warm, intelligent, witty..... and also one of an endangered species, which, sadly, Wessely is not. My vote goes to Gollum.

    Anthony Hopkins for Wessely. The perverted intelligence of a demon savant, ie Hannibel Lector.

    I just tuned in to this thread. (holy kaka!) Just when you thought things couldn't get any weirder. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    I agree, Anthony Hopkins has to be Wessely.

    What about Judy Davis as Judy Mikovits. It takes a Judy to know one.

    Thanks for your response, xmrvuk.

    I have been having this discussion on a UK forum too. Could I also ask if any US patients whom are XMRV- whether have asked their specialists about their ME diagnosis? Have you questioned whether you were originally diagnosed correctly, or are your specialists standing by the option that may XMRV not equal ME?

    I am in a personally quandary were I dont wish to be positive for the sake of my family. But the consequence is I may have been misdiagnosed for a second time. Which could obviously impact on my benefits.

    It is a worry that for some in the UK, they will eventually be proven to be XMRV-, and I think it will be very important to support them too.

    Sir Anthony is the only choice for Wessely.

    I like Julianne Moore for Dr. Judy.

    What about Philip Seymour Hoffman as Wessely (with dyed hair of course)?

    He's played some creepy roles in the past after all.

    For Dr Mikovits I'd like to see a plucky blond in her part.

    Reese Witherspoon has a resemblance (but can she do clever?)

    I agree with these two

    Wesseley = Jack Nicholson

    Dr Peterson - Jeff Bridges

    This movie idea always seems to catch on. Maybe it should be it's own thread.

    If Gollum doesn't get theWessely role, then maybe he could be cast as a PWC on a bad day.

    For Doc Mikovits, what about Mariah Carey. She seemed so tough in Precious (hmm...I didn't even think about the Gollum/precious connection there).

    Or perhaps Bruno Ganz for Wessely?

    **The subtitles in this one seem a little off though. Not really sure.
