MALC RIFKIND, CHINESE MUGS AND LOST IRONY

The Dame came across a recent review, by Malc, of a book about the MI6. Not wishing to miss the chance to show off his cleverness Malc wove in a story of a visit to Langley, Virginia.
ANOTHER CHINESE MUG

Here's a bit about the visit and how Malc showed the CIA up as mugs....









"I am an admirer of the work of intelligence agencies, but I have never assumed they were omnipotent. On my first visit to the director of the CIA, in Langley, Virginia, I acquired a commemoration coffee mug which turned out to have been made in China. When I asked them whether it was from Taiwan or the People’s Republic they said they didn’t know. Not very reassuring."

What is less reassuring is that Malc, the ex chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee, was turned over by a couple of Chinese posing as potential clients! 
What a mug!
Sometimes it's best not to show off your cleverness....it can return to bite you in the bum...
