Re: IMPORTANT - Future of UKAR

I think UKAR as an entity does have a place and should continue to exist. However, I think the current format is stale and has not moved with the times, and this is reflected in the malaise in current interactions and topics, and the need for this topic in particular.

Re: So, should they have scrapped Nimrod?

Well, only 4 or so years ago Nimrod was scrapped overnight and guess what - they now want Poseidon! It makes my blood boil because of the jobs and our money lost on the Nimrod project when if they had mothballed the airframes until a later date... this incompetent bunch of useless political fools. ...
