Today’s #SciVote roundup

Today is the day when the responses from the three main party leaders to the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE) letter asking for a full explanation of their science policies are published.

David Cameron replied first and his letter is here, Nick Clegg replied second, his response is here and Gordon Brown… well… maybe his got lost in the post? The Times has reviewed the responses.

Of course attacks on science and its supporters do continue, but there is some fightback, such as the response to an article in the Telegraph that attacked the Lib Dem science spokesman Dr Evan Harris and the success of Simon Singh, the science writer, in defending against libel action taken by the British Chiropractic Association, about which his lawyer writes in Nature.
