an unconsciously important role by acting as a kind of lightning conductor for the usual office hates and fears. In fact, he reduces their disruptive influence by providing them with a common target. The man is usually the general manager, or the Head of Admin. He 杭州桑拿按摩上门 is that indispensable man who is a watchdog over the small things-petty cash, heat and light, towels and soap in the lavatories, stationery supplies, the canteen, the holiday rota, the punctuality of the staff. He is the one man who has real impact on the office comforts and amenities and whose authority extends into the privacy and personal habits of the men and women of the organization. 杭州水疗哪里好 To want such a job, and to have the necessary qualifications for it, the man must have exactly those
qualities which irritate and abrade. He must be a strong disciplinarian
and indifferent to opinion. He must be a little dictator. In all well-run businesses there is such a man. In the Secret Service, it is Paymaster Captain Troop, R.N. Retired, Head of Admin., whose job it is, in his own words, `to keep the place shipshape and Bristol fashion’.
It was inevitable that Captain Troop’s duties would bring him into conflict with most of the organization, but it was particularly 杭州龙凤后花园网 unfortunate that M could think of no one but Troop to spare as 杭州夜生活龙凤 Chairman for this particular Committee.
For this was yet one more of those Committees of Inquiry dealing with the delicate intricacies of the Burgess and Maclean case, and with the lessons that could be learned from it.

Perversely, and knowing it would annoy, Bond had put forward the proposition that, if M.I.5 and the Secret Service were to concern themselves seriously with the atom age `intellectual spy’, they must employ a certain number of 杭州按摩店在哪里 intellectuals to counter them. `Retired officers of the Indian Army,’ Bond had pronounced, `can’t possibly understand the thought processes of a Burgess or a Maclean. They won’t even know such people exist-let alone be in a position to frequent their cliques and get to know their friends and their secrets. Once Burgess and Maclean went to Russia, the only 杭州哪个浴场有服务 way to make contact with them again and, perhaps, when they got tired of Russia, turn them into double agents against the Russians, would have been to send their closest friends to Moscow and Prague and Budapest with orders to wait until one of these chaps crept out of the masonry and made contact. And one of them, probably Burgess, would have been driven to make contact by his loneliness and by his ache to tell his story to someone. [Note: *Written in March 1956. I.
