    And worse. To the point of straight abuse, including from 'expert caring professionals'.

    This is great! Most of the article is about how the UK has not done anything to address poverty....yet here we are with a full paragraph and link to a youtube video previewing Unrest. Optimistically we could be becoming a well-known cause, one that people mention any time they want to illustrate how messed up the UK government and social services are. That would pretty much guarantee big changes with the next incoming government.

    Or maybe the author of the piece has a personal connection to ME/CFS. I'm probably being over-optimistic. But I'll take what I can get ;).

    Well, I hope we do not become identified with one of another political faction. Politics is always and ever about perception, medicine at least should be about truth.

    politics is not just about parties and factions every charity and organisation that is lobbying for more resources is engaged in political action

    if you want change you have to engage in political action
