In February 1999, Adrian Furnham wrote a piece in the UK Daily Telegraph newspaper in which he suggested that there was "a wealth of conditions that can be fashionable excuses for lack of success" in which he included ME/CFS. Dr Charles Shepherd, the ME Association’s Medical Adviser penned a response for the Association’s Newsletter saying, "Professor Furnham’s view that ME/CFS is nothing more than a fashionable medical excuse for people who are otherwise lazy, mediocre or incompetent is not only insulting, but totally inconsistent with published scientific findings". [Charles Shepherd (in) Perspectives [now "ME Essential"] , Summer 1999, page 3 [http://www.meassociation.org.uk/content/view/185/113/] ]
