So it looks like the UK is turning its back on 60 years of civilian nuclear research by leaving Euratom, which is governed by the EU.
The Joint European Torus project in Oxfordshire has been leading the way in clean nuclear fusion research for the best part of 30 years. Membership of Euratom is a prerequisite for its sighting in the UK. I'm glad I had the privilege to visit it.
When will people realise it isn't all about economics. Brexit is going to leave this country worse off for our children in many other ways. We insist we will still work with our European partners, but how are we meant to do that if we are obliged to leave the institutions to facilitate that? With Brexit and Trump in power, it's a dark time for science indeed.
We can but hope we can maintain associate membership like Switzerland. Switzerland the country that threw out a referendum voting 50.3% for tighter immigration controls from the EU because they realised how they would lose out economically due to their trade deficit with the single market....

So, the Greek, after going on and on about how terrible it's going to be you say that Switzerland, which isn't in the EU, is associated with EAEA.

Indeed the Swiss achieved full associate status this year, after 3 years of "partial association". It appears they had to make concessions such as accept free movement and also pay into the EU budget.
Not seeing many Brexiteers advocating that at the moment.
The UK was already a full member and is having to walk away without any contingency arrangements in place. Any of which will be far less beneficial than the current arrangement.

I thought I'd check, The Greek. I see i) that you've got the wrong name - it's actually European Atomic Enerby Community; and ii) this interesting snippet: 'The European Atomic Energy Community has not merged with the European Union and therefore retains a separate legal personality...'

Why rely on the EU to support what our own home government doesn't?

@ splifford. I've not read Clifford mentioning Goldman Sachs, or even the "neo-liberal project" for a few days now, and I have been playing "Clifford Bingo". As much as I disagree with his views on the EU....he generally seems ok and a progressive.

Apologies, it's easy to get a name wrong. Just saying what I saw in this article in the FT. It is a different agency yes, but it is governed by EU institutions and hence their rules.
