A top construction firm was sacked from its refurbishment of the MI6 headquarters after a major security breach, it was reported last night.
Builders Balfour Beatty (no relation to Hollywood legend and lothario Warren Beatty who apparently laid more women than Balfour Beatty have laid bricks), apologised saying they are looking into it.
According to sources, this could be the biggest security scandal since John Profumo accepted a invitation to a party from Stephen Ward, and he took Christine Keeler up the Clivedon way.
A source said: ‘The whole building went into lockdown and all the construction workers were kept in isolation..
Which went down well with all the two and one brickie gangs until the tea and biscuits ran out, then the atmosphere turned hostile.
”Now that’s what I call a Crisis” said one of the Brickies. “You can’t expect us to get a job done without at least 5 custard creams with every cuppa’
‘To lose such sensitive documents was grossly irresponsible.’ The documents would be gold dust to any enemy agents or terrorists,’ they added .
Until those plans leaked, those enemy agents had no idea were based in this completely inconspicuous building upon the banks of the Thames
The building, at Vauxhall Cross in south London, is famed for its appearance in several James Bond films.
And the next Bond movie is expected to be called “Putin Up with The Cowboys” – although MI6 reassure us this has everything to do with these builders and nothing at all to do with Russia.
