BAE And The Keys to The MoD
Posted August 16th, 2007 by quarsan
Once again the news has broken about the excessive number of passes given to BAE to wander the corridors of the Ministry of Defence.
I'm reminded of this quote by Robin Cook in his book Point of Departure
In my time I came to learn that the Chairman of British Aerospace appeared to have the key to the garden door to Number 10. Certainly I never once knew Number 10 to come to any decision incommoding to BAE, even when they came bitterly to regret the public consequences, as they did when they overruled me on the supply of Hawk spares to Zimbabwe
