    Default MI6 on James Bond and reality

    From MI6's FAQ webpage....

    Q: How realistic is the depiction of SIS in the James Bond films?

    A: James Bond, as Ian Fleming originally conceived him was based on reality. But any author needs to inject a level of glamour and excitement beyond reality in order to sell. By the time the filmmakers focused on Bond the gap between truth and fiction had already widened. Nevertheless, staff who join SIS can look forward to a career that will have moments when the gap narrows just a little and the certainty of a stimulating and rewarding career which, like Bond's, will be in the service of their country.
    So I guess no Aston Martin or Lotus "company car" :D

    I think it's cool that you can view pages in Russian and Arabic too. "We're so secret that we want you to know about us!" :D
