New website, new look, new book, New European, new and old battles to fight

Ok folks. Someone who looks a bit like this will be talking to me and @susannareid100 on @gmb this morning. About Lots Of Things. And before anyone says that is two Labour lefties talking to each other ... 1. He is not as leftie as I am! 2. We also have George Eustice, Seb Coe and Vinnie Jones who have all identified as Tories at times! We have Denise van Outen too. Don’t know about her politics.

#MentalHealthAwarenessWeek with Nature as its theme. So out I went into lovely Trent Park to talk psychedelics with Carole Routledge chief scientist from @small_pharma_
- the first company in the world to bring DMT assisted therapy (medication plus talking) to treat depression, into clinical trials.

Watch the clip and search 'Small Pharma' to find out more about this groundbreaking work. Neither she nor I have ever taken illicit drugs and this is Class A so should only ever be taken under medical supervision. But she is convinced It offers people the chance of a better life and a way to deal with depression.
