Via the Daily Telegraph:

Britain has released an archive detailing government briefings on unidentified flying objects (UFOs).

The 25 files released by The National Archives include “a lengthy briefing on UFO policy to then Prime Minister Tony Blair’s office’’ along with a job description for the post of UFO desk officer, described as the “weirdest job in Whitehall’’.

Also included in the files are details of a 1995 briefing by one of the defence ministry’s UFO intelligence officers which speculated on why aliens would visit Earth.

Despite having no hard evidence for alien craft, the officer explained that any visit would most likely be motivated by military reconnaissance, scientific development or tourism…

That rather depends how tourism is defined: They come here to hunt
