London - (Real IRA Mess): Spooks' sources hinted today that Assistant Commissioner Bob 'Tosser-of-the-Yard' Quick had already been ritually fired three hours before last Thursday's Official Secrets papers photo-op fiasco.
His appearance outside 10 Drowning Street clutching easily visible 'classified' files of an imminent UK anti-terror raid was part of a staged damage limitation exercise according to Thames House sources.
"His arrival at No 10 was clearly part of the official cover-up after Internal Affairs caught him red-handed," Dame Stella Artois, ex-MI5 CEO commented today.
Quick, 69, had been secretly tailed by UK Security ever since the House of Commons Thanksgiving Day 2008 arrest of Tory frontbench immigration spokesman Damian 'The Omen' Green.
Quick had led the anti-terror raid on MP Green's orifice after months of a spooks' disinformation campaign to smoke out Real IRA moles masquerading - yet again! - as David Cameron's frontbench team.
Shadow Tory Chancellor George Osborne is shitting bricks.
