Immigrants in power

Well, it was only a matter of time. A perfectly good Secretary of state for the Home Office has been forced out to be replaced by a man whose parents arrived on these shores as immigrants from Pakistan. The former encumbent of the position was hounded out by the Shadow Home Secretary, herself the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica. This blog, whilst recognising that some immigration is beneficial holds the view that positions of political power in the UK should not be open to people whose family have not been fully resident in the UK for three generations or more, including the present. That proviso should also preclude the present Mayor of London standing and others such as the Milibands and Baroness Warsi.
How is it that these newly arrived recipients of UK hospitality see fit to run the Country and legislate for the families who have occupied these sceptred islands for thousands of years. Do they not have any idea how rude this appears, this presumption to come to the UK and tell the indigenous locals how to run their affairs paying particular attention to the welfare of those who have on arrival, contributed nothing to the culture and prosperity. Certainly, those who fought on our side in the war are deserving of special consideration but not to the extent where they influence debate on matters of national importance. The people of the UK have managed quite well without them for millennia; they ought to integrate for a few generations before they qualify in full.

North Korean expertise

The North Korean President, Kim Jung Un, has said that he'll dismantle his nuclear weapons site in front of observers. This may in part be due to the site partially dismantling itself when a mountain collapsed following a large number of tests in the past year. However, it is interesting to ponder the future of the physicists and engineers employed on the North Korean project. They are experts in this important field and one can't help but wonder if their expertise is a marketable commodity. Can you think of any countries around the world who might want to avail themselves of this skill, paying the impoverished North Koreans plenty of much wanted hard currency?

The Davies Hypothesis LOGO

Some well respected scientist, I can't remember which one, said that the next big idea in physics, the one that could explain the mysteries of science and nature, account for the 'present' and unite the physics of the very small and the very big, should be very powerful but succinct enough to fit on the front of a T-shirt.
Well! here's my contribution: the logo for the Davies Hypothesis. (With thanks to RJD photographia)

The image highlights the four, fourth roots of one, where 'i' is the mathematical symbol for the square root of minus one.

The Davies Hypothesis posits that:
The universe, its creation and evolution is ordered in the way that it is because nature has to take account of ALL the correct answers to the question: what are fourth roots of one, unity?
