In June (or was it May) 2011 EPSRC said that they would decide later on what kind of postdoctoral felloships would announce for Pure Mathematics. In November they opened for Statistics and Applied Probability and said that later on they would open calls for other areas of the Mathematical Sciences.

It is March 2012 and I got an e-mail announcing EPSRC fellowships. Of course Pure Mathematics is not among them. In a few months it will be a year without fellowships. If Newton resurrected he would revolt. But again, there are no real mathematicians in Westminster, anymore. Only bureaucrats.

I start a new trip in a week: Barcelona on holidays and then Cambridge and Paris.
