Britain's MoD to ignore UFO reports

The Ministry of Defense has ruled that there is no evidence to suggest UFOs pose a threat to the country.

Despite a senior aviation official stating that there is least one UFO sighting a month over Britain, the MoD have now ceased all official investigations in to the phenomenon. A hot line set up to receive UFO reports has been discontinued and the 'UFO desk' once headed by Nick Pope has also been shut down. Officials believe that continuing to investigate UFOs would divert resources from other, more important areas.

"In over fifty years no UFO report revealed any evidence of a potential threat to the United Kingdom," said a spokesman.

"It is official at last: Britain is not at risk from unidentified flying objects."

This explains nothing Alien Abductions are not real but a result of sleep paralysis.... This explains nothing Alien Abductions are not real but a result of sleep paralysis.... I suggest you look up the movie "Fire in the Sky", the true story of Travis Walton. Not only that, sometimes abductions are witnessed by others, and many times during the abduction in the case of children their parents are looking them and can't find them. That would be rather unusual if they were asleep on their beds, wouldn't it? edited for clarity

Well, you're right, Shaddow I think at the end of the day people believe what they want to believe. I read both your links and found it interesting that in the comments at the bottom not everyone accepted the articles' premises. I tried to do a search on skeptoid.com while I was there for "alien implantations" but it didn't turn up anything. I'm just wondering, do you have to pay to join skeptoid.com? I'm kinda poor boy, and cheapskate to boot, lol. Thanks.

They just "say" they don't investigate to keep the public cool about it. The MOD is the same as their counterparts here in Canada. When something is spotted on radar, they scramble jets...always. To turn a blind eye is inviting disaster as it could be an attack. In our Canadian North we get orders to scramble regularly as Russian aircraft constantly test our defences by approaching very close to our airspace. They tell the public they're not investigating because there is nothing an eyewitness could add anyway. You can be sure if something unidentified shows up, the military scrambles and inve... [More]

There is no obstacle to conducting your own investigations. I completely agree. No doubt most of us are here for exactly that reason...certainly to gain the insight and perspective of others.

I completely agree. No doubt most of us are here for exactly that reason...certainly to gain the insight and perspective of others. Considering that many do, and have come up with no better than any investigative body, does that not indicate that the authorities know as much as we do? I think the UFO issue os a bit of a hot potato to be honest. Who wants to be in charge of answers on something we do not understand?

I think the UFO issue os a bit of a hot potato to be honest. Who wants to be in charge of answers on something we do not understand? You are probably correct. Government thrives on control, so they are never going to admit all their secrets have been made public. They maintain the cloak of secrecy and in doing so make us believe they know more. It's all about control. That's why they will never admit they have crashed vehicles, they have bodi... [More]

They maintain the cloak of secrecy and in doing so make us believe they know more. It's all about control. That's why they will never admit they have crashed vehicles, they have bodies, and they have reverse engineered many things...cause that would give up control over us. Since we make such wild claims and they remain silent, it makes us look like loonies. I do not think it is the Governmental silence that offers the loony angle, that comes with the claims themse...

Of course they'll investigate any object that hits their radar, regardless if it's a U.F.O or not. They just don't want too much hassle from people claiming they have seen a UFO when most of the time it's lanterns and Venus LOL.

I do not think it is the Governmental silence that offers the loony angle, that comes with the claims themselves, and the fact that most of them dismiss themselves. If we look at the perceived obstacles you have chosen above, 1 - Control. Private Enterprise tends to control the Government a great deal more than you realise. Mining Magnates can shape the value of a countries dollar. They will have input as to what taxes they are prepared to pay, or they will simply move to another country. To maintain resources and economic stability, Governments have no choice but to bow to big business. 2- Go... [More]
