MI6 admit those spy lists are accurate

Richard Tomlinson's blog is now back online after he felt it necessary to restrict access to it due to pressure from the British authorities. It appears MI6 are still hounding Richard, and attempting to frame him for the publication of those alleged lists of MI6 Officers that was published some time ago. Details can be found on Richards blog here.

It seems unbelievable that MI6 are now admitting that these lists, previously thought unreliable or possibly a plant to compromise Richard, are in fact an accurate list of their officers. What other service in the world would be so stupid or incompetent to shop a load of their own officers, simply to make a case against a single officer they had sacked. We do not so much need protecting against the efforts of hostile intelligence services it would seem, when our own MI6 can do the damage perfectly well itself.

The lists that MI6 now admit to being accurate are the John Jo list, the Todor Velichkov list and the Alan Bond list.

No doubt, the staff of the SVR and other intelligence services must be roaring with laughter at such a ridiculous move by MI6. This story is likely to run and run.
