SIS troubles

Yesterday’s i newspaper lead with a report that SIS HQ at Vauxhall Cross could be overlooked from a flat in the new residential property built at St George Wharf. Said flat was reportedly purchased by Russians with links to a Soviet era property in Moscow which is roughly 300 metres away from the “Russian Intelligence chemical site” that developed Novichok.

The i report went on to say that Alicia Kearns, the Chair of the Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee, told the newspaper, “It’s no surprise that hostile states are buying up properties for surveillance purposes – but it’s the Government’s job to stop them.”

Let’s just hope that the Russians have never heard of IMSI catchers.
