Since they have a demonstrable track-record of defunding the arts and
social sciences. The funding available through the British Academy, as
just one example, has been slashed as a result of government cuts.
Can you give one good reason why they would replace - in full - the
money which comes through from the EU for the sciences? While you are at
it, why should UK universities lose on out on Marie Curie scholarships
(i.e. post-docs coming from the continent) ?
