Someone, whom I have never met, had previously decided, on the opinion of others that I also do not know, that my research does not fit into the agenda of the University. This point was stressed again today in their refusal to support my application for a Rutherford Fellowship, my last hope for funding from my own government. As is now standard internationally, no such grant is obtainable without institutional support. No doubt everyone is hoping that when they (literally) kick me out the door, I will finally (after 25 years) give up on the idea of ever being a real scientist, and just disappear. So what should I do next? Oh, look. We have free legal services in this country ...
