    What are your thoughts with regards to "Rolls-Royce (1971) Limited"?

    And when does your support of the corrupt and incompetent government stop?

    At least Rolls Royce had a history of manufacturing aircraft engines. Oneweb, (HQ USA) has no experience in GPS satellites and no experience in GPS communications. Oneweb are merely data and TV relay specialists. That technology is completely diffident to GPS. It is obvious that the company was already in financial difficulties when they sought money from BoJo. Corruption and incompetence go hand in hand.

    Not to mention the oneWeb network is in the wrong orbit for a GPS system to run as effective as the Galileo network, by about 2000km.

    The OneWeb salesman I hear used to work for a ferry company that had no ships. Wonder if he'll be doing the trade deals too...

    At some point someone is going to feel sorry for the UK... Nahhh
