Spy Games

Following up from my rant last week about flying, there's a fascinating article in today's Guardian, about a spy seemingly planted by nobody-knows-quite-who in an effort to undermine the anti-aviation group Plane Stupid.
Oxford alumnus Toby Kendall - pictured here in a fetching combination of pseudo-activist scarf and baseball cap - hardly looks like a force to be reckoned with, and he obviously didn't cover his tracks very well. What's more worrying is the company he works for: C2i International whose Orwellian logo is "Command+Control+Intelligence=Security".

There's always a huge amount of this kind of stuff going on. See http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2007/dec/04/bae.armstrade for a particularly impressive example. Or some of the stuff from the McLibel trial, like activist meetings where spies outnumbered non-spies.
