Andrew Murrison, writing his weekly blog, has a curious attitude to science. He says that the ‘reputable scientists who designed the badger cull cannot be easily dismissed.

Yet he seems to easily dismiss the equally reputable scientists who tell us that our climate is set to change drastically if we do nothing about it. Perhaps he could explain his criteria for accepting scientific evidence. Or does it simply depend on whether it fits his ideology?
