As you may already have heard, there is a funding crisis in the UK research council that funds astronomy and particle physics, STFC.
Here is a good summary: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v450/n7173/full/4501127b.html
There is a petition to the UK Prime Minister on the official Government website here: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Physics-Funding, requesting the cuts to be reversed.
