Sir Paul Nurse gets debagged by Justin Webb.
I was driving to down to Upton Park for the early kick off on Saturday morning, with (to the chagrin of both my wife and youngest son), the Today program on the radio. At about 7:50, Professor Sir Paul Nurse was interviewed over the need to ‘remain in the EU’ for the sake of science.
To call it a ‘car crash’ would be to underestimate the awfulness of Nurse’s performance. From a standing start he went from Baritone almost to outraged Soprano in less than 5 minutes, as his arguments unravelled in the face of what was for once, a very well informed interviewer in Justin Webb.
But this foolishness over science should be unravelled once and for all. The arguments put forward that somehow the scientific research community will find work and life intolerable outside the EU is nonsense and must be shown for what it is.
