I have consolidated much of the Mull of
Kintyre data into a book “Their Greatest Disgrace”.
The content of this website has been notified to MoD, the Defence Select Committee and Head of the Civil Service, in particular the 3 main reports it hosts. Much of it has been provided by MoD. The only restriction placed upon me was that, before discussing a report submitted to a post-Board of Inquiry investigation into the Sea King ASaC Mk7 collision of 2003, I should request it under Freedom of Information. This request was submitted only for MoD to deny the existence of the report. I am therefore permitted to discuss the report.
If any error has been made, please contact me providing details of the correction required. The site permits comments to be left.
The purpose of this endeavour is to present evidence that;
financial "black hole" and systemic airworthiness failings are directly linked and came as no surprise
to anyone in MoD, Ministers or PUS (the Chief Accounting Officer). To demonstrate this, detailed historical evidence
is required. This is presented in the
form of documents submitted to both the Nimrod and Mull of Kintyre Reviews.
Also, a comprehensive report into the loss of two RN Sea Kings, prepared on
behalf of the family of a deceased airman who remain concerned at being lied to
In presenting and commenting upon this evidence, certain basic principles are recognised which are enshrined in, for example, the Civil Service Code, which demands honesty, integrity, impartiality and objectivity. The Services have equivalent rules, for example the Air Force Act and Queen's Regulations. Similarly, Parliament has the Ministerial Code, although there is no mechanism whereby a member of the public may complain about MPs/Ministers misleading Parliament, or Civil Servants lying to Ministers.
The evidence presented here clearly demonstrates a systemic breakdown in the application of Professional Diligence and Duty of Care.
