G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

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]
