The really interesting thing about James Bond is that he would be what I call the ideal defector. Because if the money was better, the boooze freer and women easier over there in Moscow, he'd be off like a shot. Bond, you see, is the ultimate prostitute.
Malcolm Muggeridge was the worst spy I ever recruted. He once claimed that through his own efficient intelligence network he had effected the sinking of a german U-boat in the Mediterranean. Impossible. It must have been a very large fish. Probably a tuna.
