Stanton,

I feel a picture of unmanned UK bases has been painted by those
who really want the subject of UFOs removed from the agenda.

You are correct in your assumption, no country would leave their
skies open to unmanned intrusion by any airborne object, it is
bordering on the ridiculous to even consider this as a serious
viewpoint.

I would imagine that every RAF base in the UK, every listening
station like that one of Baldock are happily monitoring our
skies for all kinds airborne data requirements.

A classic line I was told when inquiring to the London Weather
Centre about a UFO that was seen and filmed in Aldgate East of
London 4 years ago, was when I mentioned the word UFO to the guy
I was on the phone to, his reply still makes me chuckle "Look,
I am near retirement and I am not carrying on this chat any
longer, with that the phone call ended!"

Can you imagine someone writing "Fortean & cryptozoology is dead
and all false!" I can feel the reverberations now!
