I don’t really think you had any confidence in me anyway, so doubt this makes any difference.

For the last time I am not an author on the paper because I did not make a significant contribution. I am not authorship shy - I have over 800 after all. I would have been pleased to be an author if I deserved it but I didn’t.

Just checked back with MS. He thinks I was when first version written but I handed over before they started. I certainly did help recruit patients at the King’s site and I remember talking to the team on recruitment/consent

It’s in the public domain that CBT didn’t get people back to work. It’s one of the PACE papers! Not sure which but it will be on the website.

Hmmm. Fair point. But I am pretty sure I wasn’t a centre leader. That was someone else. If I had been I would have been author as it’s a responsible position.

Wrong. Read the piece. Tells you what I did. If I had done what you said I would have been an author .

Well done your mum. But I doubt even she could cope with some of the foxes we get around the Oval, who would even impress Al Capone

That’s not true. We started with Oxford and then added CDC 1994 when it appeared. Look at 1997 CBT trial, 1999 trial etc. We even compared the 2 in various papers. It didn’t make much difference to the results. it’s all here if you actually want to check

Am afraid that’s not actually correct. NICE Guidelines were 2007. PACE was four years later.

Thanks. Actually it was our research that ended the Yuppie flu misnomer. Just saying...

I wish that were true - that rubbish reporting began in 2011. Unfortunately I have a vast library of similar misreporting stretching back over 30 years.

Nearly 10 million people watched the second half of Portugal v Spain last night. Huge numbers.

There were plenty of ‘biomed’ trials during that period. Acylocvir, B12, NADH, hydrocortisone, galanthamime, phenelzine, immunoglobulins, growth hormone and others I can’t remember. No one was impeding them. We did one and recruited for another. And we need more of course

You will not be surprised to learn by now there is always another side to the story It’s a pity it’s me who has to point out that I replied

I hadn’t seen that and respect Prof Lubet but that wasn’t what I meant. As someone who has done a lot of big studies the main concern is to deliver a study up to standard with adequate power, few drop outs, etc. Not the results. They come last when the ship has safely docked
