Whistleblower William McNeilly says nuclear submarines on the Clyde is a disaster waiting to happen

A new whistleblower has emerged this time from Scotland detailed an 18 page dossier about how unsecure and unsafe the area around the nuclear submarine based in Faslane, on the River Clyde, Scotland. Able seaman William McNeilly has since went absent without leave.

In his report, which was published online and also sent to newspapers and journalists, Mr McNeilly said he is an Engineering Technician Submariner who was on patrol with the Trident submarine HMS Victorious this year.

He claimed there are fire risks and leaks on board and that security checks are rarely carried out on personnel and contractors working on the submarines when they are docked at Faslane. 

He also alleged that alarms had been muted because they went off so often, missile safety procedures had been ignored and top-secret information was left unguarded.

Mr McNeilly, originally from Newtownabbey, County Antrim, said he raised concerns with senior officers but decided to publish his claims because they were ignored.

He wrote: “Our nuclear weapons are a target that’s wide open to attack.

“It is just a matter of time before we’re infiltrated by a psychopath or terrorist.”

What I await to see are the MSM reports - especially on TV, from psychologists and mental health people who will no doubt be castigating and demonising this guy. I am willing to place my mortgage and everything I own for this to happen. I await this with interest.

Here's a report on this story.
