    "dodgy data, questionable practices" ... wasn't that the subheading of the PACE trial?

    I should warn you that Dorothy Bishop features prominently. So maybe not.

    @duncan I would not have minded if the PACE crew were a rock band.

    I would have still hated the lyrics but I can more readily accept that in music.

    Maybe that's where the PACE crew went wrong: they should have channeled their crazy thoughts and ideas into music, perhaps as a goth rock group.

    I can just imagine their lyrics:

    Bad Beliefs — by Simon Wessely and the Psycho Somatics

    It's all in your head
    It's all in your head
    You got some bad beliefs
    You feel you're almost dead

    So beautiful and healthy
    Your life was just ecstatic
    But you got some bad beliefs
    Now a psycho who's somatic

    The doctor cannot help you
    Your friends have all deserted
    'Cos you got some bad beliefs
    Mind and body's got perverted

    Your energy is feeble
    Your thoughts are slow and foggy
    'Cos you got some bad beliefs
    Now you're permanently groggy



    OK, OK, I'll stick to the day job.
