SpaceX only launches satellites with the permission of the US government. The US government already fucked Britain over once over access to space and we shouldn’t trust them again. When we still had a viable launcher, the US promised the U.K. free access to American rockets. The offer was withdrawn almost immediately once Black Arrow was scrapped.
