The deliciously hot and amply capable of filing any previous 'BOND" 007 star’s shoes, Daniel Craig wowed movie goers with his stunning portrayal of James Bond last year. It is not surprising that recruitment to the real life MI6 also known as the British Secret Intelligence Service has been given a run for their money with applicant’s submission on the up and up. These applicants are not always of the caliber required for such a prestigious and commanding post to say the least. Apparently, the MI6 greatest dilemma with recruitment is that too many want to join MI6, but not for all the right reasons.
"I think it gives people a false impression of what working for the organization is actually like," the head of MI6 recruitment -- named only as "Mark" -- told BBC Radio One's Newsbeat program on Monday. "So it does tend to turn up quite a lot of thrill seekers and fantasists and we're really not interested in them."
It appears the success of the British Secret Intelligence Service will hinge on just how well they manage to adequately dispel the James Bond 007 myths. For starters the myth about the “license to kill” appears to be a good place to begin according to Mark, "We don't have a license to kill -- we don't carry Berettas -- that's simply not true."
