My personal experience of DESO is that it was staffed by honourable people.

As the article says, the original purpose was to sell off surpluses from the MoD inventory. I imagine most of our crown jewels have been sold off or scrapped by now (look at eBay!) and much of the rest is so antiquated or worn out that few would want it. I reckon they've just come to the natural end of life.
