Sir Simon Jenkins is a prominent journalist (he was knighted in 2004 for services to journalism) and author, mostly on social issues and architecture. He is chairman of the National Trust. He used to edit The Times. He writes columns for the Guardian and the Huffington Post.

He is a depressing reminder of how anti-science sentiment is not restricted to the religious right. He is of the opinion that scientists and mathematicians[1] are useless, egoistical money-grubbers who demand an undue amount of attention in the popular media and state curricula, and that science is simply a giant scam for cash.[2]
