Plans for new MI6 HQ building "lost"

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Plans of the MI6 headquarters, including the building's security measures, have been 'lost' during renovation works.

"The alarm was raised around two weeks ago after more than 100 documents were lost during recent refurbishment work at the headquarters of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, better known as MI6.

"Construction giant Balfour Beatty has been sacked from renovating the London site after the blunder."

Full monty at the UK Telegraph: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/12/27/plans-mi6-building-lost-renovation-work/

 

"Neither the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, under which MI6 operates as the foreign arm of British intelligence, nor Balfour Beatty were available for comment last night.

"An FCO spokesman told The Sun: 'We do not comment on intelligence matters.'"

SACKED?  They should be taken to the basement and interrogated. Hang them upside down by their little toes until they talk.

Is MI6 comparable to the U.S. CIA?  Maybe someone sold the plans along with the other documents to the CIA.

Meh. If the CIA wanted the floor plans to the SiS building, they'd just steal it from the Kremlin ! :D

I would hope the safe plans for the safe place would have been in a  safer than this. (Where ever this is/was).

Sadly humans are fallible and fallibility leads to mistakes. The assassination of Rasputin, claimed to have been carried out by MI6, would never have been brought to light had the coat of the R-r-rasputin had it got caught under the frozen river. Simply removing the coat would have prevented this. Bay of Pigs fiasco for CIA. List goes on. Be more worried about the stuff that isn't mentioned. This sounds more like a reputation 'smearer' for the company involved. MI6, had they wanted this kept quiet, could have kept it quiet. This sounds, as I said, more like 'You screwed this up, so we're gonna show how much of a screw up you were and prevent you getting contracts in similar circumstances'. Petty? Maybe.
