An Honourable Man?

As I am first and foremost an Englishman, and after that British, I shall not link to the Trident document issued by William McNeillly. But this document’s appearance online should not be dismissed by the Royal Navy as the ‘meanderings of a very junior rating’, and “subjective and unsubstantiated personal views”.

I was able to access this document with two clicks of a mouse, and our enemies, of which there are many, will be able to read it exactly as I have done. The claims in this document are valid, and a Weapons System trainee should be listened to, and worries and stated concerns acted upon with alacrity.

Rating McNeilly has acted honourably, and if he acts as he states, and surrenders himself to the police, he might face a Court Martial, but should not be judged and dismissed out of hand!

    Sorry Mike this document’s appearance online should be dismissed by the Royal Navy as the ‘meanderings of a very junior rating’, with “subjective and unsubstantiated personal views”.

    The claims in this document are invalid, however any real concerns a Weapons System trainee has should be listened to.

    Rating McNeilly has acted dishonourably, and if he acts as he states, and surrenders himself to the police, he should face a Court Martial depending on his medical status.

    I have no idea if he is what he says but one thing I have learnt is that our Government does not tolerate people speaking out about anything they want to sweep under the carpet. Whistleblowers are encouraged to speak out and then unsupported when persecuted.My only question would be did he take this up the chain of command first and then went public when it was ignored or whitebrushed.

    I hope so but I doubt it.

      XX My only question would be did he take this up the chain of command first and then went public when it was ignored or whitebrushed.XX

      That was mentioned in the article I read about this case.

      He decided to publish after the chain of command ignored his concerns.
