See, this is one of those times where I want to wave the banner of yesteryear and ask "why is the nuclear security of our nations navy submarine
docks being left to a private company to deal with? Surely it should be a government affair, with no less than six times as much redundancy built in
as there is currently for the system which is causing the messy pants scenario ?"
I'm sure there was a time when things of this importance were not run by a bunch of lackwits whose only qualifications are that they can work a
Microsoft spreadsheet, turn it into a pie chart, and make the members of some corporate boardroom grin like maniacs before medication time. Perhaps it
would be smart for our government to stop wasting money on private contracts (many of which are poorly written to such a degree that the public purse
effectively gets stolen from every month), and start de-privatising these delicate and important locations.
Britain has had a navy in its history, which was the envy of the world, and it's operatives over the years have been some of the greatest
innovators, and some of the nations greatest heros. It's been a while since the quality and reach of the navy here has been at its peak, and I must
say that it seems as if the more our nation farms out the housekeeping as it were, to private contractors, the lower our entire armed forces seem to
fall in terms of the efficacy of their kit, provision, logistics and safety.
This particular example is just one of many that highlight the error of allowing private interests to have a hand in any essential works for or on
behalf of Her Majesties armed forces.
