Liverpool University Loosing Millions in Research Grants

Our friends across the pond isn't doing so well either. I've mentioned the similar budget debacle facing UK physics efforts, especially when the complete withdrawal from the ILC. The impact of that budget cuts will be severely felt at Liverpool University.

Liverpool University’s physics department could lose more than £5m over the next three years in what its vice-chancellor has described as a “serious” situation which could force staff cuts.

He and senior academics in physics are lobbying the Government and the Science and Technology Facilities Council [STFC] to try to stop the STFC’s delivery plan being implemented.

You some time wonder if these politicians know what they're doing.
