This author is not the current First Secretary to the Treasury, but a freelance spywatcher who, unlike the likes of Pincher and Allason, is leftishly orientated. Largely relying on fragmentary but surprisingly numerous and informative facts in the public domain, he has collected a massive, sharply up-to-date dossier on our intelligence services, which covers all the celebrated 'conspiracies' - Stalker, Hilda Murrell, BCCI, Matrix Churchill, the Supergun and more. I call it constructive paranoia.
