    Actually freedom of movement does help out a lot in facilitating the extension of relationships between researchers in different countries. Also, the current visa arrangements are extremely inefficient even being within the EU. The system is swamped by delays and even if you submit everything on time there's a risk it gets sent back because an overzealous government worker thought he was playing 'Papers, Please'.

    An Islamic caliphate would be a disaster for mankind.

    I would guess that it's a garbled, pro-Brexit argument referencing the migrant/refugee crisis, which might be seen to be tangentially related to the subject of the thread.

    Rather than predicting the apocalypse, these scientists would have been more useful if they had asked the government whether they will compensate the loss of EU grants with the money saved from the EU contribution.
    On the matter of EU grants they aren't really locked out, last I checked Israel is not part of the EU and it still got EU funding, science knows no borders, and it is scientists that allocate the grants, if we keep paying in to the particular scheme, assuming they let us which they might not for a while, we will still get a lot of it back, it's one of the few things we get more out of than we pay in and that's because Britain is second only to the US when it comes to academia.
