Purchasing the Future is Never a Made Tool for Indolent Use, which is Abusive Misuse
How much is Ultra Electronics worth to Advent International, or anybody else, if its key staff/prime novel premium intellectual property providers decide/realise their future industry and inventions be akin to collaboration and trading with a bankrupt enemy and they withhold all future imagination for product manufacture/viable program realisation????
Would Advent International/Uncle Sam think to sue and do a HPE/Autonomy and propose/contemplate it worthy of a good old fashioned, jolly roger type lynching …… and in so doing prove the case to be perfectly true and the charge entirely valid ‽ .
And such considerations are always to be expected in any business which deals in transfers and exchanges and development of extremely attractive and sensitive and subversive and coercive intellectual property. ‘Tis only natural.

Garbage In Garbage Out/What’s Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander
Such an abject abdication and quasi surrender of future third party leading rights as may be any abomination of a Defence Trade Co-operation Treaty has at least two abiding fundamental flaws.
1) If secret and sensitive future products and projects are not shared with HMG, and such are always just great initial ideas floated out to perceived allies and/or interested parties, there is nothing to steal and remotely benefit greatly from.
2) And, as is accurately recognised in this National Defense article …. https://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/articles/2021/8/20/ai-commercial-firms-key-to-future-of-geoint ……… even having ready access to too much of a good thing can so easily render one blind to what is really on offer and worth whatever it takes to safely secure it rather than successfully driving it away into the hearts and minds of others thought foreign and alien and intent on one’s destruction or subjugation ……. as may be the perceived intent of one’s own avid interest.
That’s for real, get used to living with it ….. and having to deal with it.

Some very confused downvoters who don’t really understand the reality of the UK’s “independent” nuclear deterrent. ….. Anonymous Coward
That’s very bold, AC, to let out of the bag that Uncle Sam is Blighty’s bitch although sadly nowadays nowhere near as Almighty as was and is necessary to lead anyone/everyone with a phantom fear.
Ah, the good ole days eh …… it was great while it lasted. Heaven only knows what the price to be paid for the grand deception is going to be.

Chivalry is not dead whenever one
can afford to be magnanimous
Curiously, Baidu filed with the United States’ Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to sell senior notes last week.
That was extremely generous of Baidu …to exercise themselves a very simple action that will allow billions of foreign assets to flow in their direction and into their direction in search of and in great expectation of greater shared dividends ….. common wealth.
