Herald (Sc): "US Companies Bid To Take Over Clyde Bomb Base"

Discussion in 'Bases / Shore Est' started by soleil, Oct 31, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Will there be any part of our defence left that isn't run by the private sector?
     
  2. Re: Herald (Sc): "US Companies Bid To Take Over Clyde Bomb B

    Welcome to the delightful world of the 'Global Economy', Where outsourcing and off-shoring are king

    You will find, if you look closely enough, that almost none of the UK defence industry can claim to be fully within the control of the UK.

    Don't get me started on the IT aspects of it all and the bag of crap that is being proposed by industry 'leaders' to better serve the financial needs of a fiscally constrained customer.

    (their words not mine, I will have to go and shower again just through association with such business speak b0llocks)

    If the unions and the anti-nukies don't like it perhaps it's a good idea? Mind you, LM seem to have made a howling b.lls of F35B.

    Been on the cards for over a year or so. MOD say they cant recruit and retain properly skilled people for the site. Sounds like horseshit to me.

    Wonder if the site will be branded as AWE then?
