But the episode has created, however, embarrassed as to push the Mi6 terminate immediately the contract with the company to whom he had entrusted with the restoration. "If those maps were finished in the hands of an enemy, that would be a treasure", says the Sun a source of intelligence, "contain important information on the whole structure, including the location of the inputs and outputs, alarm systems and other security measures. An error irresponsible". It is not the only value of the document itself, moreover, to arouse concern, but the fact that any paperwork can get lost in the place theoretically to be better protected all over the country: the palace of lights on the south bank of the Thames, a futuristic castle, impenetrable to each system, shut-off, with triple glazing in the windows, and forests of antennas on the roof, and a vast labyrinth of underground passages.
Who writes has been through it before, some months ago, to go to interview a writer who lives beside: Jeffrey Archer, author of the thriller, just to stay in theme. No license plate indicates that it is the headquarters of the Secret Intelligence Service, more commonly known by the acronym Mi6 (Military Intelligence, Section 6), which is the agency of espionage in Britain. A high outer wall and heavy gates of steel prevented her from seeing anything inside. The glasses of the windows are darkened. It is said that inside there are gyms, restaurants and even a nursery available to staff. The paradox is that, for its characteristic architecture, and the visibility on the south bank of the river, in London everyone is familiar with this building. And it is equally well-known in the rest of the world thanks to the James Bond films, which have elevated it to a cult: it is here that the agent 007 meets M, director of Mi6 (once the newspapers could indicate this only with this initial, now you know who is the reality and you can write it: sir Alex Younger), jokes with Miss Moneypenny, the secretary, and learn to use the deadly gadget for its enterprises.
Although most gaffe or distraction that conspiracy, the disappearance of the plan does not plead in favour of a network of controls that should be literally bomb-proof. The vertices of the spy ring are "furious" over the incident, say the rumors. You will not please even Boris Johnson, who has recently promised to strengthen the security services. Officially, the Foreign Office, the ministry of Foreign affairs, which has responsibility for Mi6, he is silent: "we do Not make comments on the subject of intelligence," says a spokesman. No comment also from Balfour Beatty, who ended with 7 billion pounds a year of revenue.
The worst part is that there are precedents. In 2012, Stella Remington, the head of Mi5, the service of counter-espionage and counter-terrorism, he lost his computer at Heathrow airport. In 2009, the wife of John Sawers, then head of Mi6, posted online family photos that could reveal the location of their private residence. And in 2000 an agent forgot a briefcase of secret documents on a train. “No time to die” is called the next, and the twenty-fifth film about James Bond, in the rooms in 2020: it is not the time to die. But it is now, perhaps, that the 007 on Her Majesty to be less careless.
