The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Its an abbreviation of General Conclave of Horrible Queens and Creepy Four Eyed Gits With The Odd Fit Bird Thrown In. It was shortened to GCHQ in 1952 for brevity in comms.

    Oh look. Two black helicopters right outside my window. You dont see that every day.

    I think it's because of the breakup of the union. GCHQ was such a good idea and so successful (see tube bombings) that everyone in the 'regions' wants their own.

    If we're being half way serious here I'd say its part of a wider plan to comfort the nation?

    Every city has always had a telecommed up building with a floor where they dont sort Grannys phone bill. MI5 had dropped the time honoured practice of recruiting over a nice cup o tea at Oxbridge and gone for a hippy website. Dame Stella Dench-Rimington has written her memoirs and MI6 is recruiting people who fancy a sun tan at www.mi6.co.uk

    So people pass a building in the countryside and it says GCHQ and we all feel a little safer.

    I hear they're launching a range of branded leisure wear come the autumn.

    There is already a best selling magazine, the tilte artfully shortend to GQ and it purports to be full of grooming advice ( not the sort of grooming that biped does! That is illegal!) And fashion tips, but when you read between the lines - best achieved by soaking the paper in bull urine and rying over a fire made from aborted foetuses - then the true meaning becomes clear!
  14. Everyone knows it's the Government for Cornwall Headquarters. Don't know why there was one in Scarborough though. Are you sure that you weren't holding the map upside down?

    I despair with some people, I really do.
