    And NICE want to form a close working partnership with this 'new improved' Cochrane?

    The description of Cochrane as prestigious seems entirely appropriate.

    It means "marked by illusion, conjuring and trickery", doesn't it?

    After reading this, I now understand why Cochrane's handling of the ME/CFS exercise review has been a complete joke.

    Only had a cursory look at this and it doesn't give a good impression about the Cochrane board members' mediation skills.

    Anyway, I had wondered before whether G√łtzsche got expelled from Cochrane because he a bit too enthusiastically praciticized their credo about having to fight against over-medicalization, the pharmaceutical industry and the like?

    Edited to add: Apologies if off-topic and badly worded -- just think we need to be cautious about the idea that every criticism of Cochrane, of PACE, of the BPS approach to illness etc. is justified, and even more cautious about potential allies. (I think G√łtzsche isn't a critic of PACE or the BPS approach, these were only meant as examples for criticism voiced by other potential allies.)

    (Edited again for clarity.)

    I don't have much trust in the judgement of Gotzsche
