This letter was sent to the Prime Minister by more than 200 academics, scientists and specialists yesterday. I think it worth reproducing in full (exporting all the signature, which can be examined on the original, here):

If we want to protect people in this country we have to protect the world. It really is that simple.
When will the government listen?
