Steve -- precisely. Thank you for that.

Mrrzy -- effect on research funding, knowledge exchange and so on of leaving EU will be deleterious.
The UK benefits greatly (and indeed disproportionately from EU funds) for research. In short: science will suffer.

If anyone knows the MGM lion well enough to send something sweet his way, it would be a good turn. I'm rather disappointed at the level of personal insult and lack of reasoned argument. One of the justifications for free speech in a democracy is the idea that good ideas should drive out bad in open discussion. MGM's insults and refusal to engage don't exemplify civil discourse.
