That's putting words into my mouth Bevan and you know it.

I asked if you had an alternative to suggest.  You've not offered one, 
just gone over how you think all the options are bad.

Is the whole thing tied down?  Nup.   Is it commercially a great idea?  
Probably not (but if it was then TLS or someone would have done it by 
now).   Is it a decent thing for the government to be doing right now?  
Most likely yes.
