Schrödinger’s Pig has this post on why things like Jodrell Bank matter. Really who in their right mind would aspire to be a successful physicist when that will cost you your job?

Really a shift in opinion is needed that recognises that having a non-Scientist Minister for Science makes as much sense as appointing a brain surgeon as Attorney General.
