This woman is NOT Sicilian

…via Glenn a story that is very serious but just you just can’t help laughing.

Sir John Sawers is due to take over as chief of the Secret Intelligence Service in November, putting him in charge of all of Britain’s spying operations abroad.

But entries by his wife Shelley on the social networking site have exposed potentially compromising details about where they live and work, their friends’ identities and where they spend their holidays. On the day her husband was appointed she congratulated him on the site using his codename “C”.

Lady Sawers had put virtually no privacy protection on her account, making it visible to any of the site’s 200m users around the world who choose to be in the open-access London social network on Facebook.

My Sicilian mother would be shaking her head in disgust, even if you have nothing to hide why tell everyone your business? Then again why do I get the feeling that if this was 1959 instead of 2009 Lady Sawers would be blabbing at a dinner parties instead?

As I’ve said over, over and over again if you put it on the net it isn’t private.

(In fact I think my mother thinks I put up too much on the blog).
