Dear , thank you for your kind letter. Unfortunately, due to Brexit, I left the UK taking with me my team of researchers. While I admire your attempt to put a brave face on it, those within the community know Brexit will do untold damage to UK science.

👀👀 ’s on Hammond resignation: “What’s now clear is that senior figures within the Tory party could join others in stopping [no deal Brexit]. “That offers us an enormous opportunity – and could leave Boris Johnson as the shortest serving PM in history.”

.: Parliament does not want a No-Deal Brexit. No-Deal would be absolutely catastrophic as the OBR outlined this week. We will have clear opportunities in the Autumn to ensure a No-Deal cannot happen

I have made it clear that likely PM Boris must stop acting like a tin-pot dictator and ditch his plans to drag Scotland and the UK off the Brexit cliff-edge. Parliament has spoken; he must rule out the madness of undemocratically forcing through No Deal and he must do it now.
