Anna Says: “Sir Peter Mansfield was an outstanding physicist. Sir Peter received the Nobel prize for his contribution to science notably for his pioneering work on developing the MRI scanner. This remarkable machine is now in almost every hospital in the world. MRI scanners have contributed to the detection and treatment of disease and injuries. Sir Peter was a delightful man and I met him many times at Conservative party events in Broxtowe. My thoughts are with Jean and their family.”

It’s nuanced in that it accepts that as head of Government it’s reasonable for him to come for discussions, during which one hopes he will hear alternative views, but that in view of his behaviour it’s inappropriate to single him out for the honour of a State Visit with all the pomp and ceremony given to special guests. If you’d like to sign it, it’s here: Continue reading
