Nurse spoke of the significance of great scientists who had changed our understanding of the world, he cited Newton, Copernicus and Darwin but also spoke about the importance of Democracy and Freedom.

Although Sir Paul is a Labour supporter he spoke of George Osborne being a supporter of UK science and Nurse revealed that he has very much been involved in the forthcoming Government science white paper.
