The Politics Show (May 10) on You Tube

Samantha Brown, a student with ME, took her struggle to obtain disability benefit to Parliament recently – with the results being broadcast on BBC1’s The Politics Show on Sunday, 10 May 2009. 

Reporter Max Cotton picks up on her story at college and as she visited the All Party Parliamentary Group on ME and talks with Terry Rooney MP, chairman of the Commons Select Committee on Work and Pensions. Jane Colby, executive director of the Young ME Sufferers Trust, helps to nail a myth about ME.
