To be an aide to Gordon Brown and get yourself caught in a "honeytrap" by a female Chinese spook and have your Crackberry stolen when you take her back to your hotel is a pretty serious security issue.
I could go on about how the Government are utter incompetents at handling data and security but instead I cannot help but think about how this guy was pulled by remembering the scene from the Kubrick classic Full Metal Jacket.
Spook: Well, baby, me so horny. Me so horny. Me love you long time. You party?I'm sure it didn't really happen like that, but you can't let an opportunity for a joke pass you by now can you?
Aide: Yeah, we might party. How much?
Spook: Fifteen dolla.
Aide: Fifteen dollars for both of us?
Spook: No. Each you fifteen dolla. Me love you long time. Me so horny.
Aide: Fifteen dollar too boo-coo. Five dollars each.
Spook: Me suckee-suckee. Me love you too much.
Aide: Five dollars is all my mom allows me to spend.
Spook: Okay! Ten dolla each.
Aide: What do we get for ten dollars?
Spook: Everything you want.
