"Ex-Files!" British MoD closing UFO report hotline, email address

This week's closing of the ministry's hot line and its e-mail account, as well as its statement that it "will no longer respond to reported UFO sightings or investigate them," has angered many Britons who believe such research is vital.

Well, now, what can we make of this rather significant development? Nick Pope is quoted in the article as saying, "It's a great shame...This is the end of over 50 years of research and investigation into one of the biggest mysteries of our time."

Pope said the decision will also hurt British national security. He said that if commercial airline pilots and other experts no longer report suspicious activity, it will leave the country more vulnerable to terrorist activity and to espionage.

Are the Brits pulling the plug simply to cut costs, as they say, or are they actually convinced one way or another on the subject and have made a decision about their military priorities with respect to UFOs? And would that be: 1) that they know enough already to know there's nothing they can do about them, 2) that their covert investigations will suffice, etc....?

Speculate away, ATS!

Yeah I just posted that we don't need their UFO hotline.
We know the UFO secrets, that is whats important.
Telling us of a new UFO sighting can be done on youtube better.
However if a witness has details for an artist to draw might be
a break through.
