The debate in the House of Commons on Monday night held some little gems but this was the best quote by far:
I was concerned that the STFC may have misinterpreted one of our recommendations, which was to improve communications. I do not think that that meant that it should improve its spin.
The discussion on the Haldane principle and how it applies was actualluy quite fascinating, not for whether Haldane was breached but rather for the context of STFC within that discussion. Very interesting to hear the government and political view.
