Paddy was a spy, says Ming

by Stephen Tall on September 13, 2007

According to the Glasgow Daily Record, anyway:

Ex-Lib Dem leader Lord Paddy Ashdown has been outed as a spy by successor Sir Menzies Campbell. Ashdown, a former Royal Marine who served with the elite Special Boat Service, was long suspected to have been a real life James Bond. Now Sir Menzies has confirmed he worked for MI6.

The North East Fife MP revealed: “Put it this way, when he was in the Foreign Office, I think he was in the more shadowy side of Foreign Office activity.”

And, indeed, the resemblance between Paddy and Daniel Craig is uncanny.

And in the “stating the bloody obvious” stakes Ming wins first prize again. This remains the best take on the subject I’ve seen.

I watched Casino Royale last night – I’ve just realised that “M”, which is revelaed is the first letter of her surname, which is not revealed stands for Maddock. What role did the former Lib Dem party president have in MI6 we have to ask :-0
