In other news - I was having a chat with a very nice chap from around these parts who works in a very big well known cancer hospital. His job is research, specifically sourcing funding for research from the EU.
He was dismayed that as a result of Brexit, all EU funding for oncology research is being directed away from the UK. Mostly because research grants are for five years or more.
This was backed up by another friend (who works in the treasury) who confirmed that grants in all kinds of research fields coming out of the EU have been directed away from the UK and the UK government are highly unlikely to be able to cover that loss.
