The war against terror

Perhaps the most blood-curdling news of the year comes this week: there amongst the adverts in the librarians' jobs list is one from MI5, advertising for spooks.

Like Mark E. Smith said of the modern music scene: "God help us if there's another war."

Ooerrr, what kind of spooks were they hoping to recruit? Very bookish ones who would glean information about other countries' weapons deployment, like, out of books?

Mark E. Smith was clearly right; Vera Lynn is the only popular music performer I can think of who'd have been any good in a battle situation.

Always good for a punch-up in a waterfront bar, was Vera.

I can't imagine that they're looking for spooks with the ability to make quick decisions.
