Re: Actually more
Science works like that, strange things noticed from leaving dishes to grow mould over the weekend etc etc etc
In fairness, most psychology students could claim that as one of theirs too!
spending on R&D and sciencey stuff is good.
Yes, yes it is. The desire to know more, to understand more, to be more is what seperates us form the other species (that and a love of curry). Scientific research, much like national defence, is one of the things individuals can't easily organise, fund, or coordinate amongst themselves; so I think some level of science/R&D should fit nicely with Mr Warstalls own views on the type of activity the state should be doing. Just perhaps not in the manner the scientist to whom Tim was responding would prefer?
