Academics debate pros and cons of BREXIT

I am mildly impressed that Leave.EU tweeted a link to this page on the Nature website

http://www.nature.com/news/academics-across-europe-join-brexit-debate-1.19282

with an article by Daniel Cressey which describes the debate scientists throughout Europe are having about the likely impact on science research in Britain and Europe if we vote to leave the EU.

It's a very good and in my opinion balanced article which gives both sides of the debate including some very powerful points in favour of the view that BREXIT would not be good for science.

So either whoever at Leave.EU gave a push to this article didn't read it properly or, I hope more likely, they were genuinely committed to letting both sides be heard in an intelligent debate.
