Its really how badly does the babcock board want to divest it self of a troublesome child.. Bristow would love the contracts especially sumburgh .. Of coarse the money men would carve up the Aberdeen real estate and decimate the workforce now Ithink about it its really quite sickening ...

What this may be saying is that Babcock simply do not have the skills to run anything difficult.

This is just one of several well-known major companies that are too used to governments shovelling money at them.

Are you for real? This is a village taxi service compared to the other activities they operate in their portfolio!

They may not have the skills required to operate in aviation. Just because a company is successful at some things does not mean they can be successful at anything.

Village taxi? A ninth of their turnover? Really?
