Why are you ok with that? Because the MoD, having studied the subject exhaustively, knows that UFOs aren't extraterrestrial spacecraft? Or even more pertinently, that they know for a fact that they're not aircraft of any kind? If the MoD really did believe that, would you really be ok with that? Would you not feel slightly concerned that they seem to treat the question of unauthorised incursions into their airspace in such a casual way?

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I agree that retrospective assessment of any aerial threat/intrusion is extremely risky defence policy/process; somewhere in the chain of command a decision on any UAP is being made - NATO/RAF still intercept Russian recon aircraft, despite knowing the identity and source of the intrusion, so why would they regard actual unknowns any differently.
For me, the infamous Belgian wave events were always very telling; we all know of the documented interception by Belgian AF F-16s, but why did the rest of NATO not consider a threat from UAPs originating from WarPac airspace?  Even Nick Pope acknowledged that the RAF considered those UAPs warranted no response.

UFO`s  are holograms bounced off the atmosphere by governments for military research . No need to investigate what they already know .

Well to say that they haven't posed a threat to any of us since the beginning of time, so why would they now.  Makes total sense to me;)

Well that's a good point, but we can never quite know what the future holds in the current cover up climate that has perpetuated for the last 60 years.  Cover-ups always have a motivation behind them; is it an honourable or sinister motive?

The Ministry of Defence will no longer investigate UFO sightings after ruling there is “no evidence” they pose a threat to the UK

Why do I get the feeling they waited for the Olympics to pass without incident before releasing this statement... ;)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

In my honest opinion, I am pretty sure the MoD will still investigate certain observed phenomena that falls within certain criteria, however, I am not surprised by this statement. Why should the MoD keep personnel occupied by people calling in about their own sightings? I am sure the UK has a pretty extensive RADAR network and if something was really there, they would know. And after 50 years with no substantial data I certainly don't blame them.

Cheers.

Yes, I'm sure that they have been "bouncing holograms" around off the atmosphere at least since World War II, so that explains everything.  LOL

If I thought for even one second that Blue Book or this MOD desk were the real UFO investigation, this announcement might not be significant, but as I have mentioned about a billion times this has never been the case.

The actual UFO investigation has always been far more extensive and more classified.  You don't call them, they call you.  In fact, that's always been how you could tell that the real UFO investigation was at work" you didn't have to notify them about anything at all, since they generally knew about it already.

Hopefully the ET crowd finally get the message that we are not being visited by Aliens.

Well yes, that's the message they want to send to the John Q. Publics, at last on the "official" level, but that has no effect on people like me who have been told a very different story about ETs.  In fact, lots of people have been told a very different story over the years, and lots of military and civilian officials have admitted there was a lot more to it.

I can be an "investigator" just like them if they're willing to set up a phone line at my house. I am willing to work at home for half of what it used to cost them. :rolleyes:
