The East Anglian locals should be offended at this insult to their intelligence.
Already determined it was a LEAK, not a "hack" - this isn't getting them any sympathy.

They didn't WRITE them!

Yup, he’s the Head Cockroach, it seems to me.
When was the last time you heard a scientist get hysterical when you asked him to explain Einstein's theory of relativity?
If you ask a scientist why nothing can move faster than the speed of light, he doesn't tell you a terrible story about how koala bears will die if you don't believe the theory is right, does he?
Scientists who are confident and in command of the facts don't need to distort data and duck basic questions about the assumptions that are behind scientific theories.

Rock solid, except for the fact we deleted/lost our original data.
The guy is a PR man, not a scientist... I wonder how long the FOI data requests sat around, and how they will cover that up...:^)
