Maybe the possibility exists for Professor Wessley to spend some time in the sandpit and experience first hand, in the name of research what some of us have had to serve in. Maybe then with the light of 'hands on' data he might change his tune.
So easy from the depths of a clinical and controlled environment to make a judgement on the feelings and mental state of others.
Another 'expert' shedding his light on a newsworthy subject. Echoes of vCJD and foot and mouth disease. Lots of 'experts' there
Maybe they should've got that Hutton geezer to do this one too! He's pretty good at fixing facts around a desired outcome.
If memory serves, the MOD has never recognised Gulf War Syndrome anyway, so they just got some guppo with a "Prof" in front of his name to endorse it.
Another case of "screw the squaddies now, they've achieved what we wanted".
I believe he is right! I never accepted the GWS hype. There are veterans suffering from a range of disabilities from GW1 and they should be looked after but the entire GWS crap was an American idea dreamed up by lawyers to hit the US Govt with large compensation suits. It just spread after that.
Lets get our lads looked after by guiding them to the Veterans Agency with proper claims for vaccination poisoning, PTSD or whatever.
