We try to but it’s really just lab reports until your Y3 project. And you know how bad some of your colleagues were when you wrote group reports..... it’s a skill I want to push for improving in the future

Imho one of the things a physics degree doesn’t teach well. Some students can write, many can’t. God knows what schools are doing.... you’ll improve during your PhD. Writing papers, proposals, grants all part of the skill set to acquire

So Shaw had a writing hut in the garden. I want. With WiFi rather than a phone and a whistle though.

Cycled past many times and finally stopped at George Bernard Shaw’s place. Seen his Nobel Prize and his Oscar (which he used as a door stop). Oh for a GBS to take on today’s rising fascism

The unique thing about Brexit is that politics is going to collide with reality on a fixed date. That rarely happens. People like Fox and Johnson are bluster merchants. Their experience of life is that rhetoric carries the day. Engineers don’t factor rhetoric into their planning.

But they were told this is what would happen. They chose to mock those warnings as Project Fear.

In the dying days of WW2, a retreating German soldier, Corporal Will Herold, found a car in which the uniform of a Luftwaffe captain had been left. He put on the uniform & decided to gather similarly scattered German troops around him, claiming he was on a secret mission...

“Unashamed Remainer” just added to John Humphrys’ ludicrous lexicon of ignorant bias.

Apparently thinks pro EU Labour MPs are trying to overthrow the EURef result. I’m waiting with bated breath for her revelations on the Pope’s religious choices and on the defecatory habits of bears.

Who needs aerospace when there’s fruit picking? Just how stupid is this country?

Great news from Mrs May! It's 'only' going to cost me £65 to apply for Settled Status and prove a right I have already had for the last 15 years. Less than a passport! Yay! I already have a passport thanks. I believe the correct response is f**k off to the far side of f**k

Airbus has threatened to pull out of the UK after warning that under “any scenario Brexit has severe negative consequences for the UK aerospace industry and Airbus in particular”. That's, 'under ANY scenario', Brexit has severe negative consequences.

After two years of hate, abusive messages incl rape threats, letters to my employer asking I be disciplined, and death threats, there is really only one question left to ask. It is a question for myself: Tanja, why do you want to still live in a country that hates you so much?

The Times provides its own solution. Aerospace engineers should retrain as fruit pickers. Problem solved.

I’ve said all along - the working class Brexit voters will only come to their senses when major industries start leaving. Nissan is the big one.
