I may not be a conservative voter but I appeal to you from my deepest being – please do not cut the science budget. Even a continued flat-line in investment would be dire for UK Science. We need to invest in what we do BEST. Science as part of STEM is what we do best. This investment is for our children. Please please please, look beyond the 5-year term to the future of our country. Once UK Science is destroyed, there will be no way back for us.
