It's cool for Brit snoops to break the law, says secretive spy court. Just hold on while we pull off some legal jujitsu to let MI5 off the hook...

I think they recruit elsewhere as well - probably not enough “d**kies” allowed into the hallowed halls (OK I might qualify on both appearance and attendance, but you get the picture)

To be fair (not that I want to be) it might have occurred to them that there are other universities who attract decent candidates and educate them properly (anyone remember the Yes Minister episode in which the hypothesis that there are only two universities in the U.K. and the minister is mocked for only have been at the LSE?)
