Wanna work in intel?
There was a time when the intelligence agencies would approach students in the Oxford and Cambridge quads and quietly ask if you were interested in intelligence work. My approach years ago had an American accent – we both thought better of it.
But perhaps now all these years of dumbing down our education system has finally been recognised by the spook leaders – it seems they’re no longer looking for paper proof of ability. You don’t need an Oxbridge Double First in maths (but bound to help); you just need to prove the right mindset.
