Mixed Nuts: Shelley Sawers

In a classic move, Lady Sawers has posted on her Facebook page that her hubby, Sir John Sawers, was promoted to be head of MI6. Granted, it wasn't like the Russians or Chinese weren't going to be able to figure this out sooner or later, but from the perspective of a dozen or so lesser intel services, as well as the usual groups of kooks, this has to be a big time saver.

Coming on the heels of the MP expenses scandal, this makes one wonder if there's anybody with an ounce of competence in Her Majesty's Government.

Memo to Sir John: If you're gonna be a spy, it's not good form to post that information on Facebook.

Personally, I'm set to follow Sir John's adventures on Twitter.
