This morning's Times Page 4, Spooks to Target Varsities for Recruits
refers. The State Security Minister (who incidentally denied all
knowledge of the fact that his estranged wife was involved in drug
running) states that they are looking to recruit quality Intelligence
Operatives. Does this mean that the drive to saturate each and every
neighbourhood across the country with
civilian Crime Intelligence gatherers is at an end? Not bloody likely.
Is Mister Cwele implying that if you have the means to attend a
University, and the brains to acquire a degree, your character is
incorruptible, and you won't be affiliated to any criminal elements?
What exactly does he mean by 'quality'? I've no doubt our Rezah Isaacs
has a bone fide degree in RF Engineering.. Has this made him less
likely to nuke his fellow-man using Petruccione's wireless weaponry? I
would suggest that Rezah is just the sort of 'quality' that Cwele is
seeking, and that in itself is a terrifying thought. More qualified
engineers to be trained at Sentech in the art of employing the deadly
wireless frequencies hidden from the man in the street?
No doubt it's
become costly to fly the one or two graduates that are capable of
sharing their expertise in this field, to all the towns and cities that
are being wired with Petruccione's surveillance technology, hence the
drive to find suitable candidates at the unis... *gags.....
