Could we have a source for the information on Simon Wessely, please, Mark?
(As an aside, I have always found it rather extraordinary the way that the hard left in Britan literally seemed to melt away into the shadows in the 90s, and I've long wondered whether they really had disappeared completely...so I would have to say this looks like the answer to that question...)
However I did also find along the way a couple of online books by Martin J Walker that look quite superb to me from a brief scan, at least one of which discusses ME/CFS, Prof Simon Wessely, and the involvement of a cadre of ex-RCP members in and around British medicine.
"Brave New World of Zero Risk - Covert strategy in British Science Policy"
