They always say that kind of stuff, but if you are bidding for one of these things you can do your case a lot of good by for example selecting an area where it will do the government good. After all who chairs the Defence Aquisition Board (or what ever it is called today)?Lamri said:Ahh but isn't it the case that the government can rightly say that they haven't actively tampered with the decision process in itself because the decision process was a MOD thing. Meaning that it was a government decision anyway?
They can just turn around and say that the decision was taken on what is best for the MOD/efficiency/streamlining/some other utter bollocks when we all know that the bases that all services hold for training purposes are generally on PRIME sites and therefore would be sold anyway, to pave the way for the coming budgets when Broon is in charge so that everything looks rosy. Robbing Peter to pay Paul again methinks!
I sympathise with your sentiments onions, but as i had no input when the decision was made, i'm not really sure what your getting at. My comment still stands, it's extremely bad for gosport but good for south wales. I'm sure if the move was being made in the other direction, i'm pretty sure you'd be saying exactly the same thing.onions said:MM, what do you think the loss of FOUR bases has done for the economy of Gosport?
