a leader speaks

"We need to make science popular again - to bring it back to people. We have seen recently some excellent popular books - Steve Jones, Richard Dawkins, Steven Hawking, Bill Bryson, whose A Short History Of Nearly Everything sold over two million copies and which was sent to every secondary school".

Thus Tony Blair, in his speech today about how Britain's path to the future is "lit by the brilliant light of science". Shades of the white heat...

Wonder how Richard Dawkins feels about being singled out by the great statesman/war criminal (delete which is ever is inapplicable)?
