Top scientists set up ‘shadow’ SAGE committee to advise government amid concerns over political interference

I am not sure anything will come of this - I can see political pressure being applied to convince the members that it 'may not be a good idea' - and I am sure they will end up advising the general public far more than the Government, who really do not want alternative views being aired.   But from a scientific viewpoint rather than a political one, it is akin to a peer review or a viva, and quite a good idea.
