One of the oft repeated mantras of the government (and Brexiteers in particular) is that we should "take back control"

Isn't it shameful then when the government allows the sale of a major contractor of UK defence and military technology to an American company.

As the daughter in law of the companies founder said "This is a deeply disappointing announcement and one cynically timed to avoid scrutiny on the weekend before Christmas .....In one of its first major economic decisions, the government is not taking back control so much as handing it away."
