Hmmm....and who said that AI doesn't pay back their loans?

If they have paid back double the initial loan, any ideas at to what the interest rate would have been? Would be interesting to see exactly what type of percentage AI received.

Guess what.... UK Tax payers are not the only ones.... French and German too.
And in fact, it pays twice for tax payers.
First, it helped to create jobs , then reducing unemployment, and the payments to unemployed people. I consider it is better to give money to create jobs rather than giving the money to unemployed people.
And when the company gives the money back, that is even better.

I don't see the significance of this post. A company which borrowed money off the UK government for a particular project has paid it back. What's the big deal? Isn't that what's supposed to happen?

I think what this post is trying to highlight is the UK Government "acting the bank" (as all Governments do) and obtaining a large amount of interest from the deal.

To be fair though the interest rate was probably in the order of 5% per annum, which over 14 years would up the repayment due on the £250,000 loan to about £425,000. The other £75,000 (let's say) would be in Royalties, and there's your £500,000.
