What an MI5 agent with a "remarkably fake" accent may look like.

As a bonus, Russia probably already knows all the "secrets" he was trying to sell. Fail all around.

Kind of a dangerous thing to try, especially when all of the governments seem united and sharing a common enemy. Us.

I'm seriously curious what would posses a person to willfully betray their own country. How can one think that is a good idea? (I understand that In some cases it is, but this situation does not apply to this situation i think)

The counterintelligence community uses the mnemonic MISE: money, ideology, sex, excitement.

I guess the feeling that your country/government betrayed you first you falls under "ideology".

MICE = Money, Ideology, Coercion, or Ego, take your pick

my guess here was Ego, since he was passed over for promotion

"gathered classified coding material after being passed over for promotion, the court was told.

And,

"At the time of the offence Devenney was drinking heavily, suffered bouts of depression and had just been cleared of rape, the court was told."

I've heard MICE, not MISE. And yeah, I'd put this as Ego (if we assume the passing over of promotion was the reason), but it could still be DAB (Drunk Asshat Behavior)- falsely accused of rape, got a drinking problem, and mix that with a touch of "Those bastards need to be shown the what for... they can't do this to me," and Bob's your uncle. An uncle who commits espionage.

I've heard both, with different expansions for each. Money and ideology are constants.

I'm pretty sure I seen this movie before, on TV, several times, and it never seems to work out.

Did anyone else notice the weird Britishism (?) "a blue-eyed boy" as a substitute for "a good guy"? 'Lord Carlile, defending, said that Devenney had been "something of a blue-eyed boy" until the rape allegation had led to a deterioration in his behaviour.'

That seems both bizarre and willfully racist... blue-eyed = good? I have blue eyes, and wouldn't make that claim!

I can't help but notice how the article skips what happened between "dumbass called the Russian embassy" and "dumbass was talking to British Intelligence." I imagine it happened one of two ways:

1) Russian embassy employee answering phone says "What a maroon! Hey, MI5, come get this guy out of our hair, would you?"
or
2) MI5 hears the phone call while it's happening over routine wire-tap of Russian embassy.

I can't decide which would amuse me more.
