There is a weird disconnect going on with the British clique.
UFOs not so much but attack fairies and trolls-oh well there is
much folklore and writing about the same in ancient Europe.
David Clarke has a doctorate in Folklore and would likely prefer
that UFOs somehow be lumped in with the former, but the fact is
UFO reports are coming in from people who are not only "the
common folk"  but people from all walks of life, industries and
sciences.

Dr. Clarke and his supporters really do have to watch themselves
if they don't want to go down in history - coined by Nick Pope -
as the MoD's "useful idiots".

Signing off on the drivel - as written usually by someone with
any interest in the subject (dollars to do-nuts that these
people are rotated on a regular basis to avoid them ingesting a
load of information that they themselves would find hard to
discard) and which comprises much of the released documentation
- though there is good stuff in there - belies what concerns the
military must have when they can't guarantee a protected
airspace; a problem even more galling for the United States.

On and on it goes.
