Spooks 3 : MPs 1

By Davidduff

I have just watched the first public parliamentary questioning of the bosses of our three intelligence agencies.  I confess to being impressed - with them, that is, not with some of the donkeys on the committee.  That red-haired chipmunk, Heather Blears, chirruped away to absolutely no point or purpose and George Howarth proved that he is as thick as he looks!  Who votes for these people?

Mind you, for the purposes of informing the public I am delighted to say that it was a complete waste of oxygen because the whole thing was a PR exercise but exactly whose public relations were really involved I do not know.  However, the spooks had their opportunity - and took it! - to lambast 'The Graun', a non-newspaper that would have difficulty spelling the words 'national interest' let alone understanding them.

Actually, I shall sleep a little easier in my bed tonight - not that I have much difficulty anyway - knowing that those three quietly impressive and rather tough-looking men were running organisations dedicated to keeping me and mine (and you and yours) safe.  Not the least of their virtues on display today was their impassioned defence of, and high praise for, not themselves but for their dedicated staff.  So, well done the spooks and spookettes, keep up your good work.
