“In the eyes of posterity it will inevitably seem that, in safeguarding our freedom, we destroyed it. The vast clandestine apparatus we built up to prove our enemies' resources and intentions only served in the end to confuse our own purposes; that practice of deceiving others for the good of the state led infallibly to our deceiving ourselves; and that vast army of clandestine personnel built up to execute these purposes were soon caught up in the web of their own sick fantasies, with disastrous consequences for them and us.”
Malcolm Muggeridge (May 1966)  [1]

His niece, as international president of the Malcolm Muggeridge Society, says he was reportedly nicknamed “The Pouncer” within the BBC.[2]
