Just out of interest,
When a subarine is in port for repairs etc.. are base personell or boat personell responsible for the security of the boat?
I.e. the security of the base appears to be lax from this article (if true), however, could a non-authorised person actually get near one of our nuclear subs?

McNeilly...Sounds like a Scottish traitor, playing a dangerous game to me.
People like this should be psychologically tested to make sure they can keep secret information secure. Also they need to be evaluated on their allegiances. Are they loyal to the UK
My bet is this guy is an SNP supporter, giving the hornets nest a little kick.

Babcock Engineering dont have issues with Criminal records, put it that way...What they do have is Issues with lying about your criminal past...just a tip for anyone turning up for the induction.. even if you stole a Mcgowans toffee aged two, fess up or you are off site.
There were a lot of red tags on equipment in most of the compartments we went into. I highly suspected a lot of them were for defect rectification, rather than standard maintenance Tagouts.
The chief potential hazard associated with a live missile is the accidental ignition of the first, second or third stage rocket motor propellant.

I served many years on U.S. subs. He sounds like he isn't ready for the submarine force. I've met many like him. First, there is a proper chain of command to report these types of problems. Leaking all of this to MSM is gonna land him in some serious trouble. All of the mechanical issues are most likely from lack of maintenance/training and will be scrutinized now. The security issues are an easy fix, plain and simple they just need to do their job. Overall, the submarine won't be leaving the pier for a good while. The chain of command will be reassigned. They will be put through all kinds of evaluations regarding nuclear, security, maintenance, etc. until their higher ups feel it is ready to be operational again.
He is not the UK Eric Snowden. Leaking facts that the personnel on his submarine are poorly trained, unprofessional, and have no regard for safety has nothing to do with government corruption. This guy is just pissed off he got assigned to the scum of their submarine fleet. Let me know when he really starts to leak anything juicy, if he knows anything
