Ian’s dropped a couple more on us so let’s list them below:
“Brussels is one of the largest spy capitals in the world,” said Alain Winants, head of the Belgian State Security Service VSSE.
He guesstimated that there’d be “several hundred” [spies] plying their trade at any one time, chasing after a broad array of topics, from trade issues to security policies.
Yet officially, the EU itself doesn’t have an intelligence service of its own. It’s dependent on the national intelligence services of the member states that supply it with “finished intelligence.” Officially.
Now, insanity, part 8745:
The EU is at it again. Please try and save our seeds
Sooner we’re out the better.
