D-Noticed Issued on Naming Spies

A D-Notice yesterday went out warning editors against naming spooks:

LEGAL NOTICE: DEFENCE ADVISORY NOTICE: IDENTITIES OF PERSONS CONNECTED
WITH THE SECURITY SERVICES – NOT FOR PUBLICATION

Please see below DEFENCE ADVISORY NOTICE

Editorial Legal Services

DEFENCE ADVISORY NOTICE

Private and Confidential:  Not for publication, broadcast or use on social
media.

To all Editors,

There have been a number of cases over the last 2 days where editors have
attempted to establish a link between a person’s identity and his
membership of the security services.  Any such linkage is likely to cause
a significant increase in the threat to a person’s life and to that of his
family, major disruption to current security operations and a significant
cost in attempting to relocate households.

May I take this opportunity to remind editors that DA Notice 05 advises,

inter alia, that the following should not be published:

‘…..   (b) the identities, whereabouts and tasks of people who are or
have been employed by these services or engaged on such work, including
details of their families and home addresses, and any other information,
including photographs, which could assist terrorist or other hostile
organizations to identify a target…..’

No responsible editor would want to name serving spies active in the field surely? It’s not like the authorities are looking for an excuse to go round smashing up journalists’ laptops. Oh…

          Fair enough.

          I we can stop the security services doing their job, they won’t be able to stop the Muzzie terrorists from doing THEIR job.Which means instead of killing the odd soldier in the street, they will kill thousands.

This facility which would require factory-fitted devices in all cars has been the subject of a position paper calling for manufacturer/operator input for at least a decade. The primary function would be taxation via road pricing, transnational travel, area access and so on. The surveillance/cum policing aspect has been a way to get law enforcement on-side as the rules on when one can and cannot remotely disable a vehicle or check where it has been vary widely from country to country.

    It is at times like this that I am glad I am not a spy.

    There could be threats to my life and the lives of my family.

    I might even have to relocate house.

      Of course

      NSA and GCHQ are joined at the hip…with NSA funding large parts of GCHQ

      Both acting conducting industrial espionnage worldwide

      http://www.theguardian.com/world/the-nsa-files

      And GCHQ doing dirty work for NSA where NSA is forbidden from doing so and vice versa

      This is global gansterism to add to the gansterism of the Irak and other illegal wars, torture, rendition and so on of US and UK goivernments

      Plus generalised criminality and corruption among US and UK banks

      And generalised corruption of the British and American political systems

      Whar a counter example to offer the world…

        Thornberry is a particularly noxious example of a posh Islingtonista / Primrose Hillbilly. I won’t be watching but it’d be interesting to keep score of the numbers of interruption she makes.
