For richer for poorer

As the Institute of Engineering and Technology combs the Coalition Governments words and actions for good and bad news for engineers, as reported on the CaSE Blog, Jon Butterworth is left scraping the barrel in terms of reading yet another anti-science article from the ever hysterical Simon Jenkins, and then giving him both barrels in reply.

Both [posts not barrels] should give the government encouragement that funding is required in science and technology.

UPDATE: Jon seems to have started a craze. From twitter:

lablit Monday is #SpoofJenks day. Irritated with boring attacks on science? Write a spook blogpost in style of Jenks. Please RT @alokjha @markgfh

Also another blogpost showing Jenkin’s cavaliar attitude to science is here.

UPDATE: aaaand another.
