Re: EU friends apparantly @ ArrZarr

we need Galileo let alone a UK system. What is the problem that it solves?

The US owns the GPS satellites and can degrade them or switch them off at will. Which might not matter for the average pleb[1] but very much does for military stuff.

You might argue that, since we are allies with the US, that isn't a problem. In which case, I refer the honourable commentard to the purported reason from Brexit: "taking back control"..
