I get the impression that the British generally consider scientists to be eccentric loners anyway!

It is a stereotypical view, although I didn't mean to imply that it was because Richard's a scientist that some people may think him eccentric, rather it's because he so often seems to be the only one wheeled out as "The Atheist Richard Dawkins". Hopefully that is changing now with the likes of Paula Kirby and Andrew Copson making such an impressive contribution in the media.
