|10:19 am - Mata Hari strikes back.|
I can't be the only one getting a little annoyed at the coverage of Anna Chapman; especially the quotes from her ex-husband.
'Towards the end of our marriage she became very secretive, going for meetings on her own with 'Russian friends', and I guess it might have been because she was in contact with the Russian government."'
I mean, really?
Completely disregarding her guilt or innocence, do the words 'Towards the end of our marriage...' not ring giant alarm bells in the critical faculties?
Yes, perhaps she was ordered by her controller to dump her husband and turn into a go-getting capitalist running dog.
And perhaps she had just had enough of the marriage, or was having an affair - both of which are not uncommon marital terminators that have absolutely sod all to do with 'Reds Under The Beds'.
And hey, can we see a possible unstated motive here on the part of the ex-husband? (- quite apart from the money for selling his story)
But no, it has to be due to the fact that she's obviously a modern Mata Hari...
Has he run out of photos of her looking attractive in a red dress to sell?
Heh. Imagine how torn Playboy will be - on the one hand, a fresh insta-celeb who looks good, on the other hand an enemy of America. Try to get a spread, or not?
If she looked like Ann Widdecombe, none of this would be being reported at all.
Not as extensively, but it would have been covered. Only they'd have called her Rosa Klebb.
Sounds like my idea of a good night in, frankly.
Okay, I'm curious now - what's #1 and #2?
1) Princess Diana faked her own death, and has been discovered alive and well on a private Caribbean island owned by Richard Branson
2) Frank Lampard dumps his TV presenter girlfriend and moves in with Cheryl Cole, ex wife of his Chelsea and England team mate Ashley.
I'm surprised the Express hasn't tried running #1 yet...

This, plus - Mata Hari was possibly found out for the very same reasons....
Mata Hari was also bad at networks?
'she started going to all these parties and premieres and hanging out with rich people! I thought it was really odd at the time, now I know it was because of the russian spy thing!'
...you mean she got a life?
Seriously. this was the quote on R1 news.

I'm perhaps slightly biased here; her ex-husband looks and sounds like a passive-aggressive chinless wonder.
I do have to wonder if her response to his allegations would be something along the lines of:
'Yes, I left you. Because you were needy and very, very boring. And life is entirely too damn short.'
Of course she didn't leave him because there was anything wrong with him! And how dare you suggest that a woman has the right to a life, with actual *pleasure* in it!!1?1 Pearl clutch!
No, nothing short of profound depravity backed up by a real life evil empire can explain why a woman should walk out on her legitimate owner, whose loyal sperm receptacle it is her stated purpose to remain. Such an inexplicable failure of The Magic of Cock can only be made sense of in the context of opposing dark arts.
I quite often go for meetings on my own with 'friends from Manchester' (or 'the Internet'). I wonder who I'm spying for?

I bet you meet up in secret venues to eat black pudding and talk about t'whippets, too.

When I saw the newpaper ads the other day, I was wondering why on Earth Amy Pond (or her actress) was on the front page. Not so, it turned out.

My comment was that her handler had been arrested in the vicinity of a vintage police phonebox ;)

And I'm in London quite often. Do I work undercover for the GMC?

I can imagine the conversation
Alex Chapman: “…and that’s all I can remember.”
MI5: ”Thanks for your help. And… keep this under your hat, alright?”
*bip* *bip* *bip* “Hello, is that the Daily Telegraph? Have I got a story for you…”
Re: I can imagine the conversation
The Times actually said "Was told not to talk to the press, but sold his story to the Telegraph." The article radiated Unimpressed.
