After more than 50 years in operation, the British military quietly shut down its UFO investigation service last week, saying it would save the government money.
Roy Lake, founder of the London UFO Studies group, said "I think it's a stupid thing to do because this could create a threat to national security. We take this quite seriously."
But a Defense Ministry spokesman said, "None of the thousands of UFO sightings reported over the years have ever provided substantiated proof of the existence of extraterrestrials," and stressed that closing down the UFO inquiry unit would not add to the security threats Britain faces.

I believe there is, however, another possible, logical explanation for this decision. The British government could be shutting down their UFO investigation at this time because they now know, conclusively, that extraterrestrials DO exist, so no further investigation is necessary.
This fits with the military's declaration that this new policy does not pose a security threat. They could only know that for sure if they are now in actual contact with the extraterrestrials, and are convinced the aliens are friendly.
Lake says, "I think the government knows damn well what's going on up there and they're covering it up." I think the UFO watchers are more correct than they know.
