Thanks everyone for your comments. The whole thing was a very strange experience. Dr Aftab did not tell me he was going to invite additional comments – no other interviewee has had extra contributions inserted at the end – and I am at a loss to know how I misrepresented their views (although they certainly misrepresented mine.) The wider reaction on Twitter was extraordinary. I was called everything from arrogant, vicious, reductionist, dangerous, flaky, misguided, hostile and bullying to ‘morally depraved’…..and all of those comments were from professionals. None of those who disagreed with the views I put forward (as they have a right to do) actually engaged with the arguments. I think this says a lot about the fragile foundations of psychiatry…. Robin Murray is regarded in the UK as an open-minded critic of many aspects of his profession, probably much more so than his US counterparts, but it appears that there is an line of criticism that you must not cross. You can go so far and no further. I’m pleased people liked the content, but the process was even more interesting….
