You couldn't make it up. Stop, go, stop.
Add up the whole mess of L81 servicing contract, L144 not being available in sufficient numbers to replace the No8 for a significant period, there was sufficient information available to be pushing for action solutions months & months ago. Indeed, from the trials of the No8 replacement, & the expected follow on timescale, that should have been flashing warning lights a year ago. Thank goodness it's not a commercial organisation, as the Board probably would have been fired!
