Do you worry about what Johnny gets up to on his X Box?

Just as you start getting concerned that young Johnny is spending far too much time playing multi-player online games on his X Box Live console, instead of concentrating on his homework to boost Ofsted’s measurements of South Shields’ schools, your fears are instantly allayed. (Come to think of it I’ve even seen games consoles installed in staff relaxation areas of local companies.)

He’s only wanting to do his bit for Queen and country!

“GCHQ is keen to recruit a diverse range of people – many of whom will not have considered this type of work, or even be aware they might be in demand by the intelligence services. Many gamers have the right skills and we know they’re particularly receptive to advertising within their space. With this in mind we hope we can encourage even more people to investigate the many career opportunities at GCHQ.”

And there was me repeatedly reminding “Junior” that life is not like a game!

  2. Curly you ought to be more worried about what Cllr.Khan does on his puter, I’m pretty sure he’s writing all the copy on the Indies website/blog. I put a comment on there after he started crying over the loss of David MacLean at the Gazette, guess that means they have no friends left there now. Not the first time Id seen a writer use your story and claim it as an exclusive so I told them so, thing is the you cannot write what you want at the Indies website so they scrubbed your name and website out of my comments. Bugger thay cant even lie straight in bed that lot.

    You don’t need to be in MI6 to work them out Curly.

  3. […] Tomorrow, if we suddenly got twelve inches of snow, I wonder just how many kids would (a) be allowed to play outside in it out of sight of parents (b) know how to make a well formed spherical snowball, (c) know how to control a sledge (if they have one), (d) would be accused of anti-social behaviour for throwing said snowballs, (e) know how to make a giant snowman, or (f) know how to drag themselves away from the Xbox 360? (Well after all their future career might depend upon it). […]
