Guest Irish Times Stupid Statement of the Week July 17, 2016Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.
Thanks to L O’R for the following;
Irish Times Magazine, 16 July 2016, page 40:
“The Secret Agent is based on the novel by James Conrad, and is set in 1886, long before James Bond or George Smiley were operating. Toby Jones plays Verloc, a Soho shopkeeper who, unbeknownst to his wife, works as an agent for the Soviet Union.”
Must be a time traveller then, as the Soviet Union was not set up before 1917!
