Email to my MP about SAGE’s scientific integrity

Do you believe that science should inform politics or that politics should inform science?

Dear Mark Jenkinson MP,

I have a couple of questions. They relate to the current debate about the membership of SAGE. The government’s position appears to be unclear but do you personally believe that science should inform politics or that politics should inform science?

Bear in mind that previous attempts by politicians to influence science have resulted in dangerous psuedoscience like eugenics (AKA Social Darwinism) which completely bastardised a scientific theory for nefarious, discriminatory ends against poor people, the sick and disabled and non-Europeans.

What’s your personal view, Mark?

Should politics inform science or should science inform politics?

Yours sincerely,

Stuart Sorensen

Workington resident
