Thought the Aussie patients might be interested to see this video.
It seems you have a passionate and well informed advocate in your corner.

I don't know much (anything) about Australian politics so I won't try to put this in context.
Any Australians know the context of this video or any info on this Senator and his involvement with ME?

For anyone who is interested, Senator Ludlam is appearing on Kitchen Cabinet next week on ABC TV Thursday night at 8pm.

For those who haven't seen it, Kitchen Cabinet is a program where political reporter Annabel Crabb conducts "soft" interviews with politicians over a meal in their homes.

I'm interested in finding out more about this politician who has been championing our cause.

Scott Ludlam looks as though he's being admirably persistent - and homing in on the issues that make a difference. In the earlier video he very accurately observed that far too many people have been getting by on 'bugger all'.:(.
