Implications for the UK intelligence community


Implications for the UK intelligence community

On 9 March 2008, Gordon Brown presented a White Paper to Parliament that served as the first comprehensive attempt to distil a ‘National Security Strategy’ for the United Kingdom. The starting point for the strategy is the existence of a fixed and unwavering obligation on the part of government to protect the British people and the British national interest. However, the strategic analysis then goes on to assert that the nature of the threats and the risks the UK faces have changed beyond recognition in recent decades, so confounding all the old assumptions about national defence and international security.
