+ - UK government "muzzling" scientists->

taikedz writes: Fiona Fox, chief executive of the Science Media Centre (SMC), has claimed that leading scientists independently advising the UK government are being actively prevented from speaking to the public and media, especially in times of crisis when scientific evidence is necessary for a fully open and educated public debate, such as the current badger culling policy, and the past volcanic eruptions and ash fallout and their effects. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), whom many of these scientists are advising, denies any such practices.
