The ongoing GSOC fiasco is far less tinker, tailor, soldier, spy and more the butcher, the baker and candlestick maker. Whatever way you look at it the GSOC affair has proved to be a communications omni-shambles of epic proportions for all concerned.

One wonders what foul invective Malcolm Tucker might use to describe the public relations plan being adopted by all sides regarding revelations of "intelligence gathering" at GSOC.

Partly charged by an over- enthusiastic press convulsed with the idea of being involved in some James Bond spy blockbuster and further fuelled by a series of bizarre, unqualified and sometimes contradictory statements from the uncomfortable triumvirate of GSOC, An Garda Siochana and the Government, it's the story that just keeps on giving. And boys just love a spy story.
