Brussels Bungs of Brexit-Bashing Boffins

Today’s Guardian has gone big on the news that a group of scientists have claimed Brexit would be a “disaster“. “Nothing good can come of it,” according to ‘Scientists For EU’, who boldly insist on their website that “Scientists for EU receives no money from the EU”. Oh really?

Sitting on their board is Laura Sandys, the Europhile former Tory MP who is chair of the European Movement. Which gets £10,000-a-week from the EU.

Next up is Anne Glover. Until last year she was Chief Scientific Adviser to the President of the European Commission. Literally in the pay of Brussels.

Then there is is Lucy Shackleton, who is European policy manager at Universities UK. On top of grants from Brussels, Universities UK members directly take cash from the EU’s regional development fund. Swansea University for example paid for a new campus with EU cash.

Scientists for EU receives no money from the EU”, but their board members do…
