Unless I'm mistaken all UFO's that appear to be a 'nut's and
bolt's' spacecraft turn out to be hoaxes.
If you can offer video or film evidence on the contrary I'd like
to see it.

Confidence requires evidence, they don't have the confidence

You mean something along the lines of:

"Dear Government,

Could you please tell us what these little blobs are we keep
seeing in our skies?

We haven't got a clue what they are but there's an awful lot of
speculation going around.

Any information would be greatly appreciated."

 >There is no reason to hide UFO information, is there?

Do you know the term knowledge is power?

Have you ever considered that maybe the Government don't
actually know what these things are?

For them to admit that would deminish them in some way.

All the time you keep putting them on the pedistal of all
knowledge they will always hold power over you.
