We need to be rid of this sooner rather than later.

It will certainly be interesting to see if they take any action or just arrest the lad.

I know Betsy, if any part of this proves to be true in my view he should be given a medal.

Well - they've got him now.

QUOTE
"He was stopped last night at Edinburgh Airport and is now being held by Royal Navy Police at a military establishment in Scotland.

His report alleged 30 safety and security flaws on the submarines, describing them as a “disaster waiting to happen”.

A Ministry of Defence (MoD) spokesman said today: “We can confirm that Able Seaman McNeilly was apprehended last night and is now in the custody of the Royal Navy Police at a military establishment in Scotland where he is being afforded the duty of care that we give to all of our people.

”The Royal Navy disagrees with McNeilly's subjective and unsubstantiated personal views but we take the operation of our submarines and the safety of our personnel extremely seriously and so continue to fully investigate the circumstances of this issue.“"

Spot the difference though ...
"A Facebook post understood to be from Mr McNeilly's brother said he returned to Scotland last night.

Aaron Lewis wrote: “My brother is safe and well.”

Asked where his brother was, he replied: “He handed himself in last night."

this was posted on facebook.
spent 15 years working for the Royal Navy as a submariner, 12 of which was on-board trident nuclear submarines. I would just like to add that the comments made officially by the MOD are rubbish. I have personally sailed on submarines which had no business leaving the dockside let alone going to sea and I was a member of the on-going crew of HMS Vanguard after its incident with the French submarine and from what I saw with my own eyes, I am inclined to agree with Mr McNeilly's assessment.

Trouble is, if they agree with it then they'll take even more money off the poor to buy shiny new ones!

Whistleblower discharged from service over Trident report

A Royal Navy whistleblower who claimed the Trident nuclear programme was a "disaster waiting to happen" has been discharged from the service.

Able seaman William McNeilly went Awol last month after producing a damning 18-page report containing a series of allegations about the Trident submarines based at Faslane.

His report alleged 30 safety and security flaws on the Trident submarines, however, a Ministry of Defence investigation found the claims to be "factually incorrect".

The Royal Navy said it disagreed with Mr McNeilly's "subjective and unsubstantiated" views and said it takes the operation of its submarines and the safety of its personnel extremely seriously.

The 25-year-old from Belfast has posted a new seven-page online post thanking people for their support.

He said he has been given a "dishonourable discharge" and he refused to sign a document discrediting his allegations which would have led to an earlier release for the service.

The whistleblower also quoted Sun Tzu's The Art of War and scripture from the Hebrew bible as well as voicing his opinions on the SNP's case for independence and against the nuclear deterrent.

Mr McNeilly wrote: "Most people know that I acted in the interest of national security.

"However, I was still given a dishonourable discharge from the Royal Navy on the claim that my sole aim was to discredit their public image.

"The truth is, I view the Royal Navy as the greatest navy in history.

"Some people within the Royal Navy have been maliciously spreading the rumour that most of the information in my report is just hearsay. People should read the report before they judge it."

The claims became a major political issue and were raised in the House of Commons. ...
