This is just a liberal laundry list masquerading as an 'objective' assessment of the conservative government's attitude toward science.
What is actually happening here is called "balancing the budget". The funding of many programs have been cut --from sports to science. Why scientists feel their programs should be immune to budget cuts when governments the globe over are practicing austerity is a mystery.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
