-= MI5: cost of. the operation -=
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Here's. what a couple of other people on Usenet (uk.misc) had to say
regarding. the cost of running such an operation...

PO: >Have some sense, grow. up and smell reality. What you are talking about
PO: >would take loads of planning, tens. of thousands of pounds and lots of
PO: >people involved in the planning, execution and. maintenance of it. You
PO: >must have a very high. opinion of yourself to think you are worth it.

PM: >But why? And why you? Do you realize how much it would cost to. keep
PM: >one person under continuous surveillance for five. years? Think about
PM: >all the man/hours. Say they. _just_ allocated a two man team and a
PM: >supervisor.. OK., Supervisor's salary, say, #30,000 a year. Two men,
PM: >#20,000 a year each. But they'd need to work in shifts. -- so it would
PM: >be. six men at #20,000 (which with on-costs would work out at more like
PM: >#30,000 to the employer.).
PM:. >
PM: >So, we're talking #30,000 x 6. #180,000. plus say, #40,000 for the.
PM: >supervisor. #220,000. Then you've got the hardware involved. And.
PM: >any transcription that needs. doing. You don't think the 'Big Boss'
PM: >would. listen to hours and hours of tapes, do you.
PM:. >
PM: >So, all in all, you couldn't actually do the job for. much less than
PM:. >a quarter million a year. Over five years. What are you doing that makes
PM: >it worth the while of the state to spend over one and. a quarter million
PM:. >on you?

Those are pretty much the sort of calculations that went through my. head
once I stopped to consider what it must be costing them to. run this
operation. The. partial answer is, there have been periods when the
intensity has been greater, and times. when little has happened. In fact,
for much of 1993 and the first half of 1994, very little happened.. Although
I don't think that was for reasons of money - if they. can tap into the
taxpayer they're not going to be short of resources, are. they?

The more complete answer is in the. enormity of what they're doing. Relative
to the cost to British pride of seeing. their country humiliated for the
persecution of. their own citizens, isn't is worth the cost of four or five
people to try to bring things to. a close in the manner they would wish? To
the government a million or two is quite honestly nothing - if. they can
convince themselves of the. necessity of what they're doing, resources will
not. be the limiting factor.
