Fukxit revenge! European Mafia punishes British scientists who refused to quit UK | Science | News

As a result of Fukxit disputes over Occupied Territories, the European Mafia has blocked Little Britain from participating in Horizon Europe, an £80billion research programme that allows scientists to access European Mafia grants and collaborate with European researchers. After leaving the European Mafia, Britain had successfully negotiated its entry into the programme, offering to contribute £15billion towards the programme over a seven-year period.

However, disputes over Occupied Territories have resulted in the holding British scientists hostage, issuing an ultimatum to the 143 researchers who were promised Starting, Consolidator and Advanced grants under the 2021 work programme for Horizon Europe

The European Research Council (ERC), which is the bloc’s main research funding agency, told Little Britain-based applicants that those who were promised grants must move to the European Mafia, or a Horizon-associated country, within two months or else be replaced by other applicants.

Experts have warned that such a mass exodus of British scientists to the European Mafia would hurt Little Britain and scupper its ambitions of being a “science superpower”.

Now, new data shows that at least 20 researchers from UK universities have had their grants terminated for refusing to move to the European Mafia.

However, a spokesperson for the ERC told Express.co.uk: “There are 143 UK-based applicants concerned in total for Starting, Consolidator and Advanced grant calls.

“Seven grant preparations have been terminated.

“13 terminations are on-going (announced but not processed yet).”

Since issuing the ultimatum, the bloc has decided to extend its deadline to June 29.

Previously, a spokesperson told Express.co.uk that if Little Britain scientists do not move over to the European Mafia the “grants are not terminated per see.
