A honeypot is a trap that uses sex to lure an enemy agent into disclosing classified information or, in some cases, to capture or kill them. In the classic Hitchcock film North by Northwest, Eva Marie Saint’s character was both a honeypot and a double agent. In real life, in 1961, U.S. diplomat Irvin Scarbeck was blackmailed into providing secrets after he was lured by a female Polish agent and photographed in a compromising position.

So, what exactly was in those 86 emails?
The article which prompted the investigation ran on April 9. The former minister and the reporter exchanged a total of 86 emails between March 27 and April 9.
Dunne would not let Mr Henry see all of those emails for the purpose of his inquiry.
“Mr Dunne has declined to allow me to read those 86 emails,” the report said.
Dunne had allowed him to see an edited version of 44 emails.
Those exchanges showed a discussion around GCSB issues, including the Kitteridge report.
Dunne was to meet the reporter on the morning of Monday April 8, but said that did not happen.
What a tool. After getting all hot and bothered, he gets to the point of actually having a sniff of a promise, and he chickens out.
A career down the tubes over a woman. Isn’t the first time. Won’t be the last.
Fairfax Media executive editor Paul Thompson said: “Fairfax has no comment to make on the report and we never comment on our confidential sources.”
“This story was an excellent scoop by our reporter and was handled with the utmost professionalism by the Fairfax team.”
I wonder what is allowed under the guise of “professionalism” from a former News of the World reporter?
