MY LIFE IN MI6
The former head denied the intelligence.
Sir Richard Dearlove was special, impossible.
As special as breaking or receiving.
The operation would be foreign, absolutely plainly outside,
for to mount the chain would have
denied a plan. He believed the idea at a low level.
The proposal was "killed stone dead."
Assassination in writing
would have been utterly ridiculous
in the queen's company.
I am tempted to say I am absurd...completely off the map,
an extraordinary exception to confirming.
