'I greatly enjoy tales detailing the combination of the truly stupid amongst us and networking sites. Brightens up my whole day... '
'I'll declare my bias by admitting I loath Facebook and related sites...'
Basically the story goes like this - the new head of MI6, the British, um, secret intelligence service sort of had all his personal details (minor details like, oh, where he lived and worked) plastered all over Facebook.
As a result poor old Sir John Sawers and his family are most probably going to have to be rehoused (and let me tell you, MI6 are hopping mad) .
And who was responsible for this breach of national security?
None other than this woman.
Off with her head! I hear you say- which is possibly something MI6 would have entertained if it weren't for the minor detail that she is Lady Sawers.
Needless to say Lady Sawers no longer has a Facebook page.
I applaud her, together she and Facebook have managed to turn the British Secret Intelligence Service into an oxymoron.
