Insomnia boss Bobby Kerr 'shaken not stirred' over GSOC bugging controversy

Coffee entrepreneur Bobby Kerr has said the GSOC bugging controversy has proved to be good publicity for his brand.
The Chairman of Insomnia Coffee Chain has joked that he is "shaken not stirred" over the controversy.
Yesterday it emerged that the source of an external wi-fi network, which had connected with a device in GSOC's offices, was traced to the Insomnia coffee shop on the ground floor of their building in Dublin city centre.
Paul Williams revealed in the Irish Independent that the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission had known for months that the wi-fi network in the coffee shop was the innocent explanation for one of the "anomalies" identified in a security sweep of its offices.
"The first I heard about it was at 7am when I saw the Irish Independent," he said.
“It’s all good,” he said on RTE's John Murray Show.
“We’ll co-operate [with an inquiry] in any way we can.”
The Dragon's Den investor has been inundated with jibes on social media, and he has taken it all in good spirits.
“Shaken not stirred... I saw a picture where my face is pictured on a hologram in a cup of coffee , and the caption says ‘shaken not stirred,” he laughed.
“We’re in the business of making coffee, and keeping our customers happy.”
