According to The Times today, the MoD has saved the princely sum of £44,000 by closing down its UFO ‘investigations’. We must remember that they never investigated a single case, so the money saved is purely in relation to administrative costs as the one guy who mans this desk has been re-deployed elsewhere. But in reality it is another chapter in the story of the MoD distancing itself from anything UFO related and is in fact, in my humble opinion, part of the game of distraction. Firstly we had ALL the UFO files being released via the National Archive. This was basically ‘don’t come to us, go look in the Archive’. Then we had Dr Clarke’s book which basically said ‘interesting, but nothing to note’. Now, the UFO desk is closed, so in effect the MoD has nothing to do with UFOs at all.
This the MoD locking down the whole subject as far as they are concerned. Now £44,000 is a drop in the ocean when the MoD’s budget is concerned, we could look at the fact that over £100 million has been spent on private advisors to the Treasury in the financial debacle as a sign that money really isn’t an issue to the Government. No, this is the MoD and the Government distancing themselves from the subject, because no matter what starts flying through the sky today, no-one is involved within the Government or MoD. (I have pontificated on the hidden departments but they don’t count because they technically do not exist)
Money isn’t the issue. It doesn’t undermine what is contained in these files. So it begs the question: Why?
