The election is underway…

…and #SciVote reaches criticality.

Professor Brian Cox has been keeping up the pressure in a tweet or two with the two science spokesmen he can get hold of (Drayson and Harris). Note that as soon as Parliament is dissolved, not only does Drayson become an ordinary Lord with no affiliations to the then non-existent Government and Harris becomes an ordinary guy, not a member of a parliament that officially doesn’t exist, but the departments and other government arms such as STFC and the Space Agency (which launched less than a week ago) go into perdition. Everything is locked down and the machinery of governance goes into a purely mechanical mode, ticking over. So no announcements are due and little information given until after May 6th.

Everyone now hits campaign mode.
