Last quote by Peter Ellerton

You have always had an anti-intelligentsia undercurrent, or some sense in which people imagine that their own thinking is sufficient to determine these truths for themselves, and they don't need this body of work to tell them otherwise. There's a move away from evidence-based policy in general, politically. The first is to doubt and question, and the second is to listen to the answer. Sometimes that requires some intellectual hard yards and I think some people who call themselves sceptics don't want to do those hard yards. Calling themselves sceptics is a badge of honour they haven't earned.feedback
