These things happen when the government represents the interests of its own people instead of the interests of the globalist elite.
Why would globalists want EU? In truely globalized world there can be no EU, as all countries are equally important parts of the world. EU is just next iteration of Holy Roman Empire, I'd call it Forth Reich. They're really prone to treat everyone outside EU like trash, kinda like Third Reich.
Well, perhaps we could find a better way to hand out grants to scientists, so we don't end up wasting it. I mean there's the Replication Crisis to consider, and the Decline Effect, and then somewhere north of 40,000 neurology papers that were a waste of time (not all British of course).
Those things pretty much demonstrate that funding of this "science" is mostly empty waste of money. Acquiring funding and doing science are two totally different skillsets and this pretty much guarantees that people doing actual (that is replicable) science will get jack shit. I see nothing bad about those pseudo-scientists, whose only "productive" contribution to society is to elicit citations from other such pseudo-scientists in endless circlejerk, to get a tiny bit less grants which are mostly wasted anyway.
