In an astonishing statement Signus Snoop, up until now the secret trainer of under the covers Police spies, lay out his support for free love.
'You can't poke around in these organisations, devoted to promiscuity, without having a bit of it yourself' he explained 'if our spies did not go along with the anything goes culture we would stand out like sore thumbs. In any case we do not put married men and women into these desperate situations. You must remember that our whole way of life is threatened by these naked monsters. It is hard on us to do this but we owe it to our country.'
This passionate declaration gained the support of many but a policeman of the old school, who had been retired early because he always tried to uphold the highest standards, told me that things had changed for the worse since his day.
'We always maintained the highest moral standards' he told me 'none of this cavorting with lesbians, queers and sex maniacs. You cannot change these wayward types by doing the same as them. You have to set a standard. Show right from wrong.'
The dilemma was summed up by an under the covers policeman who spoke exclusively to me on the condition of anonymity. 'If I screw I can get somewhere' he told me 'if I don't I'm one of the enemy. I would be revealed. My cover would be blown. I would be seen for the upright gentleman that I am.'
Recruitment for under the covers work has sky rocketed in recent days.
I tried to get another view from 'Out of this World' - one of the groups high on the list for subversion but I could only get a rendition of 'Empty Bed Blues'.
