Tweet Minister

Just over a week ago a conversation started on Twitter. This, itself, isn't unusual but what was unusual was that the conversation involved a Government Minister; the Science Minister no less. The conversation started with a comment by Colin Stuart who was worried about Lord Drayson acquiring responsibility for the role of Defence Procurement as well as Science. Several other science twitterers chipped in and it became a rare example of direct interaction between Government and the public.

I've saved the entire conversation including the comments about Lord Drayson's racing team at Le Mans (Science, Defence Procurement and a racing team!) to show what was said and some of the context.
