In September 2016, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) was compelled to release the data from the 2011 PACE trial, a trial which examined the effect of graded exercise therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy against standard medical care.

West Australian Alem Matthees was one of many people who wanted a closer look at the information from the study.

farageThe net is closing in on Farage and almost two decades of alleged financial irregularities. 

Nigel Farage, Roger Helmer and new UKIP leader, Paul Nuttall were all named in the investigative piece – which can be found here in French.

The net appears to be closing in on UKIP and their massive alleged financial irregularities, booking cooking and general fraudulent behaviour. Many whistle-blowers and ex-UKIP members have told a similar tale after leaving the party, but thus far, the EU has not acted decisively in bringing UKIP and their far-right partners to heel.
