Keith Richards, a guitarist with The Rolling Stones, now aged sixty-six has finally admitted that he has been working for the Israeli secret service since 1961. He had been recruited whilst at Sidcup Technical College when an Israeli classmate realised he was destined for bigger things.
Over the next five decades, Keith Richard's career took off, taking him around the world with Mick Jagger, Brian Jones and Ian Stewart touring, making records and meeting plenty of influential people. All this time, the Israeli's had Richards on their payroll.
Last week MI6 uncovered a list of Mossad spies and double agents, and Keith Richards' name was on it, and Richards had to finally come clean and admit his involvement in the spooks game. It also transpired that he recruited the rest of the band into the organisation.
Jee N'Trayners, the British liaison with the Israeli security agency, stood side by side with Keith Richards in front of the world's press.
"It is true that Mr Richards was in our employ," N'Trayners said. "And it is also true that the rest of his band were working for us."
John Smith, spokesman for MI6 has played down any potential security issues.
"We have analysed all of the communiques between Richards, Jagger, et al, and the Israelis," Smith said. "And we have concluded that nothing of any value was given. Therefore we can state categorically that a Rolling Stone gathered no Mossad intelligence."
