Save physics, forget the cheerleader.
As I’m sure you are all probably aware by now, if you read this blog you are, Physics is facing a massive cut in funding (about £80million, so 4 premiership football players!). The reasons are multiple and you can read many of this elsewhere, such as at [www.saveastronomy.org.uk]. I recommend you taking a read there, it has all the background stuff you need to know. Anyway, yesterday the undergraduates at Birmingham did a sterling job of trying to promote the petition to the UK prime minister.
Oh and if you believe that this should be stopped show your support by petitioning the UK prime minister at: [http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Physics-Funding/]
