Top UK SIGINT spy at GCHQ hands in lunch pail

David Pepper obtained a DPhil in Theoretical Physics at St John's College Oxford, joined GCHQ in 1972. He joined GCHQ's board in 1995 as Director of Personnel, transferring to the Home Office three years later to lead their Corporate Development Directorate.

During his two and a half years in London he was responsible for corporate change management, IT services and accommodation, gaining practical experience of delivering large PFI projects.

He has been Director of GCHQ for five years (KCMG - Order of St Michael and St George in 2005 Birthday Honours) involving a move from over 50 ageing buildings into a new state-of-the-art headquarters in Cheltenham (The Donut) ," without any break in service to Whitehall customers, including the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Ministry of Defence. The organisation has continued to produce world-class intelligence and information assurance, which has been essential in helping combat threats such as terrorism, cybercrime, and narcotics, and in supporting British forces in the field." .. it says here. (as well as bugging my lover Diana Spencer's phone calls)

He is married with two sons and his leisure interests include music, reading, walking and cooking.

He has just called to tell us that he retires in July, his successor has not been named (or probably selected yet)....no doubt whoever it is will be busily involved in Jacqui Smiths knicker wetting ideas on controlling the Internet and suppressing the awkward squad.

Who knows it could be someone recruited via the subliminal advertising by GCHQ in shoot 'em down games earlier this year.

If so, it is certain that they won't have been educated at snooty, St John's the wealthiest and leader of the Norrington Table and alma mater of the Catholic Zionist carpetbagger and war criminal Tony Blair, curmudgeon and minor poet Philip Larkin, finest post war novelist John Wain and Jethro Tull (the 17 Century father of the agricultural revolution NOT the rock gods) - although they do have their own TV station.

UPDATE Saturday : Contacts at GCHQ appear anxious to explain that David's monster auditory apparatus earned him the soubriquet "Plug" the super intelligent hero of the Beano's Bash Street Kids at an early age. Rumours that his ears could be brought into use when the comms satellites were down, are apparently totally unfounded.
