    Default "The Science" is...

    Political science.

    SAGE (official) has not modelled the opening of schools in England that the UK government has proposed.

    Therefore it is clear the only "the science" the UK government is following is political science.

    The science is settled! Anyone who disagrees is akin to a Holocaust Denier!

    More likely science fiction.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    How much longer will we tolerate the Marxist-Lenin infiltration of SAGE - their models were designed to collapse the Western economies - fire the lot of them.

    For general public anything that contains mathematical symbols is considered to be science.

    So if you want to open schools you could say "We are going to open schools from June." - but that wouldn't be scientific.

    Also add some terms like "correlation", "graph", "prediction"...

    To be scientific you say "When R < 1 then schools = open. R according to prediction on the graph will be 0.5 in June. We have strong correlation between <insert waffling>"

    I'd agree with you, but you spouted crap about Big Pharma, so I'm going to say - stick to poetry. You're really good at that.

    Thomas Dolby had a better idea in 1982. Science is stranger than fiction.
