    The writer of this piece, Chris Chambers, has a written a book, 'The Seven Deadly Sins of Psychology'. No mention of PACE, but some of the 'sins' sound familiar.

    "Our mission wasn’t about truth seeking. How painfully naive I had been. It was about crunching through as many experiments as possible as quickly as possible, finding ways to make ambiguous data look beautiful, publishing frequently in prestigious journals, getting to work in so-and-so’s “rockstar” lab (which of course always produced beautiful results and published exclusively in said prestigious journals), winning large public grants, and basically getting as famous and powerful as possible."

    He's based at Cardiff Uni's School of Psychology, which is I think home to Mansel Aylward? Not that I'm implying anything.

    ETA: Just looked up the Science Media Centre for a separate query, and CC is on the advisory commitee.

    Excellent article. Directly applicable to Crawley, White and all their little pals. Don't suppose they will read it and recognise themselves.

    Pedagogue prostitutes in other words

    normally such corruption is "just" (and even then it's not trivial) a blight that retards Science
    but since this whole ugly and deliberate mess was about people's HEALTH, it was a high crime, including murder
    there must be no acceptance or cover up of this WHAT SO EVER

    never EVER overlook or forget that people have been denied vital medical aid, had their children taken from them after falsely accused of a FAKE psychological issue and sometimes NEVER given back/adopted by others, people have lost limbs, been left paralyzed, killed or suffered permanent horrible traumas of all kinds by all this crap.

    yes, rather appropriate, really...an Eye Tyrant, aka, a "beholder"
    evil, xenophobic, very intelligent but with extremely stunted wisdom and empathy, mad schemes to rule the world, sadistic, controls people by fear, generally go insane in the end
    Sounds like Wessely, don't it?

    :p
