Seen a UFO? Don’t call the MoD – anymore
For more half a century paranoid fantasies about flying saucers, little green men and alien invasions were officially indulged by the existence of a department within the Ministry of Defence that investigated UFO sightings.
But after more than 11,000 sightings spawning countless conspiracy theories, the department has been scrapped. The UFO hotline is no more…
Are we alone in the universe? The MoD doesn’t care any more. When you ring the old hotline number, you get a terse recorded message: “Please note it is no longer MoD policy to record, respond to, or investigate UFO sightings,” it says.
The U.S. government isn’t much better. Not since Project Bluebook days – and I think that was designed to keep an eye on complainers.
Your only choices, nowadays, are local law enforcement – when they finished chuckling at you, try one of the fanboys.
