So understandably the debate goes on whether we should be drinking champagne or lucozade this morning after yesterday’s announcement. But I rather liked this sobre assessment by Jenny Rohn, originator of the Science is Vital campaign which has appeared in The Guardian.
The New Scientist has also published a detailed analysis penned by Imran Khan from the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE).
But Jenny Rohn’s piece in particular struck a chord with me. It reminded me of something someone once taught me as a young campaigner: that you should never underestimate the importance of the moment when those you are trying to influence begin to share the same language as you.
In the meantime I’m going to have a nice cup of tea as I recover from some sort of CSR inspired bug.
