Thanks in turn! It would be very useful if the authors of these invitations could be asked to invite several keynote speakers from AIAS / UPITEC, so a few of the team could attend, notably the inventors and electrical engineers. I realize that Ceredigion County Council cannot pay your expenses so you are not able to attend any of the conferences despite being a famous scientist in your own right. This is typical of colonial rule of the real Wales. The award of the Civil List Pension was mainly due to a long and eloquent statement of support by Prof. Emeritus Alwyn van de Merwe, of the University of Denver, the famous avant garde editor of physics. The letters by Prof. Dr. Bo Lehnert of KTH, a Royal Swedish Academician able to nominate for a Nobel Prize, and the late Prof. John B. Hart of Xavier University Ohio were also a great help. The nominators were the Royal Society of Chemistry and probably also the Royal Society. A nomination for a Civil List Pensioner must come from a Royal Society of some kind. The papers were sent in error initially from the President of the RSC to Rt. Hon. Gordon Brown, M.P., the then Chancellor, who forwarded them to the First Lord of the Treasury, the Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Tony Blair M.P. who recommended me to the Head of State, Elizabeth II, for appointment on February 29th., 2005. The Queen probably read the papers and made the final decision, her prerogative on ministerial advice. There are about fifty two CLP’s at present, about five or ten in science. Even so, the cut up University of Wales is unable to help in any way by doing its duty and offering an Emeritus or similar. If good enough for the Head of State, my distant Tudor cousin, it is more than good enough for the cut up UW. This is again colonial government of real Wales. The colonists defy their own Head of State. Anywhere else in the world I would have been appointed as an Emeritus, for example if appointed by the President to the Supreme Court of my other country the United States, an honorary degree or emeritus position often accompanies the life appointment. This is why drastic reform of the UW is needed. It blankly refuses to recognize merit in its own people.

Thanks Myron. These are very pleasing developments for yourself and all of AIAS. The recognition from France is particularly good because one of their best scientists, Vigier (along with Bo and Alwyn), was the first to fully appreciate the significance of your earlier work. Vigier was highly regarded in France and his legacy lives on.
