So, UKFI looks after the taxpayer's interests in enterprises where there is Government money invested in privatised businesses, where there is a contingent public sector liability involved, or where there are critical output delivery requirements. Nuclear dock upgrades and maintenance of submarine capability meet these criteria. UKFI's seconded (from the finance sector) heavyweights will be involved in the Cabinet Office decision to invoke the Special Shareholder rights to take Devonport back and sell it on to a competent operator. The Boatman report is severely overweight on the relevance of Appledore to the current situation. Mod (by which I mean senior RN officers) is, however, highly culpable in the Marine Division mess relating to the Astute refit capability. It failed to kick off the required investment in 2011 because it was too frightened to ask for the money from HTM. Unbelievable, given what is at stake. Couldn't disagree with the comments about the Chairman and CEO, however.

Has anyone seen the "times" write up on the Liberium intervention?

Well some of the sentances are quite weird as if a bot has done them, although a bit wouldn't spell denial as denile and it's a schoolboy typo as the letter a is at the opposite end of the keyboard from l.

I suspect Boatman Capital minions are at work on this board

The recent posts on this thread all seem to major on its Marine Division. That seems sensible. It owns, for once, critical, nationally important infrastructure. Updates to its forecasts relating to delays in the submarine refit schedules might relate to the absence of an Astute Class refitting dock facility when it is required for HMS Astute. Hope the MoD has this situation under control. Bring in the Shareholder Executive? Cabinet Office stuff.

Cross ref another company SRT - there is a massive need for patrol boats across the world as a result of fishing boundaries and political boundaries and I can't imagine demand becoming less.

Company apparently "reviewing options" for Appledore - rather vague! If they build offshore patrol boats there must be a good market - lots of smuggling, illegal immigrants, fishing disputes, and border patrol issues going on! Hopefully the directors are out selling hard.
