Beddington supports Nutts

Prof John Beddington, the UK government's chief science adviser, has come out in support of Prof David Nutt, the UK government's former drugs adviser.

Prof Beddington told the BBC: "I think the scientific evidence is absolutely clear cut. I would agree with it."

Prof Beddington would not offer his thoughts about Prof Nutt losing his job for wantonly relying on scientific evidence when providing advice to the government.

  1. He was paid big money to advise
    Without fear favour or lies
    But his idea of truth to power
    Was to give the PM a shower
    He should have heeded his own words to the wise.

    ''Politics is politics and science is science ..."
