Blair discovers science.

Tony Blair has suddenly discovered the importance of science. He has been talking to the Guardian about it, making a speech in Oxford and talking to the New Scientist magazine. The Guardian has a report on the latter. The Guardian's links to related articles seem to make a mockery of government claims of seeking to encourage young people to take up science. I have no idea if the irony is intended.

The New Scientist is subscription only but you may get in through Google News. If not, the Downing Street website has an edited transcript and a podcast.
