MI6 Agent Betrayed

#1
Apologies as it's the News of the Screws...Click here for James Bond style excitement....

"I was the perfect deniable agent for them," says Berry, 37. "They recruited me, told me I was doing work of national importance—and then dropped me in the s***."

Former Queen's Regiment soldier Berry says he was approached by MI6 in 2002 as he ran an engineering firm exporting housing to Afghanistan.

something doesn't seem quite right about this story, dunno if its just heavily exagerated or what.

"I shouted to Karsi, ‘We're going to have to take them out'. Then I leaned back and pulled out an AK-47 I had hidden under a blanket," says Berry.

He raced ahead and pulled off the road behind a rocky outcrop, leaping from the vehicle with his gun.

"As they came around the bend I let rip a long burst straight through the windscreen. As the 4x4 careered across the road I followed it with three to four bursts. It went into the ravine.

It's just not worth anyone's attention. Those nasty-looking weals on his back were applied by Photoshop, which is not exactly a painful ordeal to go through. I haven't read the tosh, but is someone plugging a book or something? If so, the author of the book deserves only brain-dead NOtW readers and they deserve IT.

I've met the bloke and read the original manuscript. The story is basically true though this is obviously a hyped-up NOTW version of it.

Cobblers, they were taken by an FCO official on a consular access visit when he was in prison. There's no doubt that they're genuine.

Quite so. As the northern Italians say "South of the Tiber is Africa" :? (that's assuming of course they actually admit to being Italian...as opposed to Lombards, Venetians, Tuscans etc.)

I had a Siclian descended Roman girlfriend some years ago, and their family name is 'Zappalà' which I believe is a construct including the name Allah deriving from Arabic...you gotta love the honourable society...they certainly know how to keep a secret ;)
