The wife of the new head of MI6, Britain’s secret intelligent agency, has caused a major security breach and left his family exposed after publishing photographs and personal details on Facebook (foreign office staff are warned about using social networking sites when they join but MI6 advises its agents to maintain even tighter secrecy, telling them to reveal their true role only to their closest family).
In this case, Sir John Sawer’s wife decides to share their intimate details to 200 million Facebook users. D’oh!!
Sir John Sawers is currently the UK’s ambassador to the United Nations and is due to take up his new post in November. Talk about bragging about your husband’s job!
